KINAL: Gov’t Unable to Present a Plan for Making Use of EU Funds

November 19, 2020

ATHENS — Opposition Movement for Change (KINAL), in a question to parliament on Thursday, claimed the government had shown itself unable to put together a plan for using EU funds to restructure the country.

KINAL accused the gov't of being "unable to present a comprehensive plan for using European funds, amounting to 73 billion euros, from the restructuring fund and both the new and current NSRF, the national development plan 2021-2025 and the SURE programme and the 19.5 [billion euros] from the Common Agriculture Policy" for Greece's productive and developmental restructuring in the next years.

"For us in KINAL, the crisis showed that our modern social democratic positions for sustainable growth and social justice aiming at people-centred progress are not only more timely than ever but also extremely necessary. The government has no excuses."



ATHENS - Turkish criticism of Greek President Katerina Sakellaropoulou for calling the killings of Pontic Greeks more than 100 years ago a genocide were a further attempt to hide the truth of what happened, Greece's Foreign Ministry said.
