ATHENS - "All labour measures taken are temporary, transitional" and "full-time contracts will remain full-time," State Minister Giorgos Gerapetritis said on Friday in an interview with Open TV.

The overall goal of government intervention is "a bridge programme that will ensure social cohesion." The government's plan is "very professionally designed and that is why we are confident that it will succeed," he said.

The minister stressed that "what we are seeking is to build a programme - a bridge, which will ensure social cohesion."
