Mitsotakis: The Government Aims to Continue the Developmental Boom

THESSALONIKI – Continuing on the path of a developmental boom with public, private and public-private partnerships (PPPs) is the government's goal, after the successful management of the first phase of the coronavirus pandemic, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said on Tuesday in a meeting with the mayor of Thessaloniki, Konstantinos Zervas.

Mitsotakis expressed hope that there will be no second round of the pandemic, however he appealed to the citizens to not be complacent or neglect the rules for protection against the virus but continue to observe them, avoiding crowds.

On his part, Zervas told the prime minister that Thessaloniki's "patient zero" in the pandemic was actually within the municipal council of Thessaloniki and that the town hall was the first building disinfected in Greece, adding that Thessaloniki had done well because there was the necessary preparation.

Mitsotakis reassured the people of Thessaloniki that the major developmental projects in the city had not stopped for a single minute, not even during the pandemic, and that they will be completed on schedule.

Zervas said that Thessaloniki was "turning a page" and described Mitsotakis as "the prime minister of works."
