ATHENS – Government spokesman Yiannis Oikonomou on Wednesday in an interview with SKAI TV described next month as crucial for the course of price increases, adding that the government will take additional targetted measures for the most affected citizens depending on the tools and possibilities at its disposal.
“We are constantly processing all data. Obviously the next month is crucial for both incomes and households and for the course of price increases in the market,” he said.
Oikonomou underlined that the government wants to have a substantial footprint.
He added: “Obviously, the interventions have to be done in this period when the world is suffering, when the world is being tested. On the other hand, however, let us not forget that we have not stopped supporting the Greek society. The government is finding opportunities and resources to support society, to support workers, to support businesses and consumers in the face of this incredible and unprecedented energy price increase. And at the same time, always in a prudent way in order to maintain the fiscal balance and the credibility of the country.”
