Georgiadis: There Will Be Additional Support Measures for High Fuel Costs

ATHENS – Development and Investments Minister Adonis Georgiadis said that there will be another round of support measures for fuel costs that “will be announced when the existing fiscal margin becomes clear,” in an interview with ANT1 TV on Tuesday.

Focusing on the price hikes, he spoke of a global phenomenon and a complex problem, as besides international inflationary pressures and the repercussions of the war in Ukraine, the increase in borrowing costs as a result of Christine Lagarde’s announcement of the termination of the quantative relief programme must also be factored in.

However, he underlined, that all things considered and taking into account the fact that this was a global crisis, Greece is doing well and certainly the economy is getting better and better.
