PM Mitsotakis Addresses “Human Rights in Business” Conference

ATHENS — Everyone should have equal access to opportunities, and discrimination has no place in Greek culture, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said on Thursday, in an address to the online international conference "Human Rights in Business".

The conference was organised by the Foreign Affairs Ministry's General Secretariat of International Economic Relations & Openness, the Justice Ministry's General Secretariat for Transparency & Human Rights and the Labor Ministry's General Secretariat for Family Policy & Gender Equality.

"The struggle for equal rights in diversity is a struggle for social equality and prosperity," Mitsotakis said, adding that it is natural for changes to meet with resistance, and underlined that it was important to continue with reforms but at a "non-excessive" rate.

Related to this, he called on businesses to assume similar responsibilities and become "inclusive employers", as their success lies in creative configurations rather than divisive ones.

"There is no production without collaboration among employees, regardless of gender, color, language, religion, sexual orientation and gender identity," the premier said, "and this, I would say, is the direction of the 21st century."
