Gerapetritis: End of Pandemic Will Bring Growth Momentum

ATHENS — "Everything that's needed will be done," Minister of State Giorgos Gerapetritis said on Wednesday in an interview with Alpha TV, while sending a message of hope: "The end of the pandemic will bring very significant growth momentum to the Greek economy."

Regarding the national health system, he stressed that, with the end of the pandemic, it will be radically reformed.

On Greek-Turkish issues, he said that "there is no secret diplomacy, what exists is strong diplomacy."

Gerapetritis stressed the importance of consistency in the statements made at home and abroad because, as he said, this has been a major problem in the past.

Asked again about a statement he had made the previous day regarding the current six-mile limit to Greece's territorial waters, the Minister of State repeated: "Sovereignty is now at six miles; we retain our unilateral sovereign right, whenever the Greek State decides, to extend [the country's] territorial waters to 12 miles."


ATHENS - "This year tourism proved that is Greece's "heavy industry" and can not only support the national economy but also offer a substantial support in very difficult conditions" Tourism Minister Vassilis Kikilias stated among others in an interview with Athens-Macedonian News Agency on Sunday.
