Iliopoulos Urges for Real Government Support for Greek Enterprises and Employees

February 3, 2021

ATHENS — Real government support for enterprises and employees, with high levels of public spending, is the only way to avoid shutterings and a massive wave of looming layoffs," said main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance spokesperson Nassos Iliopoulos to BLUE SKY TV late on Tuesday.

Speaking about the catering and restaurants sector, he said that "the sector's representatives said that 40 to 50 pct of their businesses may not reopen," noting that the "this situation will not change if the government does not take immediately bold measures."

He said that his party's main concern is for human lives to be saved, adding that SYRIZA is in constant contact with the people on the front line and with all sectors hit by the pandemic.

"We do not pay attention to the early election scenarios that the government is constantly leaking," he said, adding that SYRIZA is, in any case, ready for any development.
