ATHENS — "There is a need to set up a new production and growth model for Greece in the coming decades," Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said on Friday in a message at the 8th Development Conference co-organized in Patras by 'Peloponnisos' newspaper and the Region of Western Greece.
Addressing the participants, he said that "in the new chapter that opens today, I would like to give only the title "Greece that produces, Greece that exports."
Regarding the new production and development model, the Prime Minister said that it must have two characteristics and explained:
"First of all, the decisive participation of the regions. Already 1/3 of the many billions of the new NSRF and 10 billion euros of the national development programme are directed to the regions and 2.5 billion euros of the "Antonis Tritsis" plan of the interior ministry are already available to municipalities and regions.
The second pillar is a new model of economic progress, which will balance all productive sectors."
