Pissarides at Delphi Forum: Reforms in Greece Will Move the Country Forward

ATHENS — Greece is treading a course of reforms that will bear results, said professor of economics and Nobel prize winner Sir Christopher Pissarides on Thursday at the Delphi Economic Forum VI, held out of Zappeion Hall in Athens.

He reminded the public not to worry about the changes that must be carried out in order for the country to move forward.

Pissarides underlined the need for the smooth collaboration of economy and the labor market. A proper economy supports labor and employees; while efficient labor supports the economy, incentives should always be provided to workers to make their labor more efficient, he said.

The international conference of May 10-15 is under the aegis of President of the Hellenic Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulou, and Athens-Macedonian News Agency is a communications sponsor (see www.amna.gr/delphi-VI).
