Greek FinMin Welcomes GDP Figures

ATHENS – Greek Finance Minister Christos Staikouras on Tuesday welcomed the release of GDP data which showed a 7% growth rate in the first quarter of 2022.

In a statement, Staikouras said this was a very positive development, which significantly exceeded the European average growth rate and proved that the Greek economy, despite intensifying pressures from the energy crisis and the waves of price increases, maintained a strong dynamism.

The Greek FinMin said it was encouraging that GDP growth was based, among others, on a significant increase in investments and exports. “These performances signalled a dynamic start for GDP in the current year, laying the foundations for achieving stronger-than-expected growth. With consistency, determination and confidence in our powers, we continue the demanding and uphill struggle to lead the economy into an environment of high and sustainable growth, creating more positions of employment and strengthening social cohesion,” Staikouras said.

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams?
