Georgiadis Pledges to Continue Reforms to Make Greece Investment-Friendly

December 4, 2020

ATHENS — There is absolutely no chance that either Greece or any other European country will demand back the money that has been given to businesses the minute the pandemic is over, Development and Investment Minister Adonis Georgiadis emphasised on Friday, at the Greek Economic Summit-GES2020 of the Hellenic-American Chamber of Commerce.

While the unexpected outbreak of the pandemic had altered the government's calculations, Georgiadis stressed that it had in no way "changed our intentions or our belief in the goal." Consequently, he added, "in the months of the pandemic, despite the great recession that the restrictions necessarily bring about and the big drop in tourism, our desire for reforms is undiminished, so that our country can become more friendly to entrepreneurs and investment."

Georgiadis also expressed his conviction that all the government's actions will bring results, noting that Greece has already risen nine places in the global competitiveness rankings, to occupy one of the best positions in the country's history.
