ATHENS – Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, who is visiting the island of Syros, on Friday visited the premises of ONEX Neorion Shipyards. “I am very happy to visit today the shipyard, which is full of life. You contribute 15 percent to the island’s GDP and offer more than 500 jobs,” Mitsotakis said.
“I am very happy that here you have succeeded…. This is how we envisaged growth in the country. Above all, when we speak of growth, we speak of good jobs. Especially when we speak of Syros, with such a long history in shipyards, which identifies with the capital of Cyclades, Ermoupolis,” he added.
Mitsotakis also said that the government will support this investment “as we are close to any productive investment that creates jobs.”
As government sources said, Neorion Shipyards are the proof of the recovery of the shipyards’ sector in Greece and the invigoration of industrial activity.
