PM Mitsotakis and ESM Chief Regling Discuss EU Economy and Energy Challenges

September 20, 2022

ATHENS – The situation in the European economy and the challenges in the fields of energy and inflation dominated the meeting on Tuesday morning between Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and the managing director of the European Stability Mechanism (ESM), Klaus Regling. In fact, this is the last visit to Greece made by Regling in this capacity, since his term of office ends on October 7.

Mitsotakis and Regling discussed the difficult situation on a European-wide level, as well as the notable performance of the Greek economy and its good prospects.

The meeting was attended on behalf of the Greek side by Finance Minister Christos Staikouras, the chairman of the Council of Economic Experts of the Ministry of Finance Michalis Argyrou and the special secretary for Private Debt Management Marialena Athanasopoulou.


ATHENS - A rapprochement of sorts that has seen tensions dialed down between them doesn’t mean Greece isn’t still wary of Greece, said Defense Minister Nikos Dendias, saying there is still an “existential threat” despite warmer ties.
