In comments made to Open TV station, Gerapetritis said: "It is certain that there will be relief measures for the enterprises that have been affected. Of course, this largely depends on the financial support expected from the European Union." He also referred to the submission, in the next few hours, of a report drafted by the commission of economic experts – headed by Nobel prize winner Christophoros Pissaridis – on how the Greek economy should be transformed into a more rational model, strengthening social cohesion, labour and the economy.
