Mitsotakis and Staikouras to Annouce Additional Labour Support Measures

October 30, 2020

ATHENS — Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and Finance Minister Christos Staikouras will announce further labour support measures on Friday afternoon, in addition to those that already apply horizontally to all sectors of the economy, including regional television stations and the media, government spokesperson Stelios Petsas said on Friday.

Petsas responded opposition KINAL MP Vassilis Kegerogos, who asked for the strengthening and support of the Greek regional media, which he said had been victims of a blatant injustice in the distribution of funds related to the campaign to contain the coronavirus pandemic.

Petsas pointed out that for the new public information campaign to address the pandemic crisis, amounting to 2 million euros, the government in this phase is moving forward with the programme voted by Parliament. As he said, this programme will run throughout November and only through the national channels, not the regional ones, as it is estimated that this will provide the best possible coverage for the message at the lowest possible cost.


ATHENS - With the economy accelerating, Greece plans to make an early repayment of 8 billion euros ($8.
