Georgiadis: When the Experts Give a Green Light, We Will Open Up Retail Trade in Stages

November 25, 2020

ATHENS — "When the experts give a green light, we will open up retail trade in stages," Development and Investments Minister Adonis Georgiadis said on Wednesday in an interview with ANT1 TV, adding that "the final announcements will be made when we have the full picture."

"This will be done in a structured way so that people know precisely what to do. The main thing is to avoid confusion, so that each business owner knows when their store can open, what the rules are, under what conditions and exactly how they will work. This is what the government is trying to ensure, in order to inform the people with the greatest degree of responsibility," he explained.

"Under no circumstances should there be overcrowding in very small spaces," he added.

"Even when walking on high streets, we must follow the measures. We must always wear a mask and have antiseptic in our pocket," Georgiadis said.


MOSCOW - Common sense should prevail over time and diplomatic activity between Russia and Greece in Moscow and Athens become normalized, Russian Foreign Affairs Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova noted at a press briefing of Russian and international journalists on Wednesday.
