Oikonomou: The Gov’t insists on a Strategy of Attracting Investments

February 10, 2022

ATHENS – “Τhe government has been closely monitoring the energy crisis and the secondary price hike crises since the end of the summer,” government spokesperson Yiannis Oikonomou said at the regular press briefing on Thursday.

He said that the government, for the sixth consecutive month, has been supporting households and enterprises as they face the repercussions of the unprecedented energy crisis, with sums that will reach 2.0 billion euros in February. He also conceded that the increase on prices can’t be fully covered, adding that this was beyond even the most powerful economies. “No other country has taken such drastic measures relative to its population and the size of its economy,” he added.

Oikonomou said that the government is insisting on a strategy of attracting investments and that this strategy is bearing fruit for Greece and the Greek people.


For the first time, Greek voters in the homeland and the Diaspora will be able to participate in elections for the European Parliament for the first time on June 9.
