Georgiadis Optimistic Over Course of the Pandemic and Vaccinations Programme

ΑΤΗΕΝS — Development and Investment Minister Adonis Georgiadis appeared optimistic about the future course of the pandemic and the vaccination programme at a meeting with the board of the Thessaloniki Chamber of Commerce and Industry, which was held online on Wednesday.

Georgiadis said that it was logical that there should be fear and concern about the pandemic, as nobody knows when it will be over, but appeared confident that the situation will get much better in the next two weeks.

The minister stressed that Greece must be on time for the tourist season and that's why vaccinations are being speeded up for workers in specific sectors, such as tourism and the food and drinks service sector.

At the same time, according to the Chamber's announcement, Georgiadis said that the measures already implemented for the support of the economy do not raise any concern in terms of long-term debt servicing.

The government's policies will continue, Georgiadis underlined, until it is apparent that the economy is once again up and running and this will not happen in one day after lockdown is lifted.
