Mitsotakis: Returning the Dividend of Growth to Our Fellow Citizens in a Fair Way

October 26, 2022

ATHENS – “There is a rich agenda,” Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said on Wednesday in his introduction to the ongoing cabinet meeting. The prime minister noted that a month ago he had requested that the rates of implementation of the priorities be checked on a constant basis and referred to the timely implementation of the measures he announced at the Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF).

These are measures, he said, that boost income and almost 1/3 of them have been voted, among which are the heating oil discount, the abolition of the solidarity levy, the increase of the housing allowance, and the small and medium sizes companies’ exemption from the enterprise tax.

The prime minister also referred to the arrangements that are coming next month, with perhaps the most important being the payment of the extraordinary benefit of 250 euros.

An important intervention, he said, is the increase in the beneficiaries of the household appliance-upgrade programme to 200,000, while measures will be launched concerning those in the primary sector in November.

“We are able to launch these measures because the economy has done better. We are not going to accept any deviation from the fiscal targets for 2022 and 2023. We are proving that we are willing to return the dividend of growth to our fellow citizens in a fair way”, he underlined.
