ATHENS — "A lot of hard work is waiting for us in the next weeks," Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said on Tuesday addressing the cabinet meeting.
Mitsotakis sent a message of optimism saying that despite the huge difficulties still existing "especially in the front of the economy, a wind of national confidence and optimism is blowing in Greece" and verbally attacked the main opposition referring to an "unprecedented attempt of institutions' manipulation" to which, as he said, "the insititutional normalcy is the strongest response".
"Rarely so much has been done in such a short period, especially if someone takes into account the fact the we have encountered huge challenges, in economic, geopolitical and health sectors," he underlined making a short review during the cabinet meeting.
Mitsotakis also referred to the start of the tourist period and gave credit to those that cooperated to have this "organised plan to receive visitors to our country without making any discount in the issue of safety and public health".
"We are aware that the bar is set very low, and it will be a very difficult tourist period, we will do the best possible," he underlined.
He also said that the government is ready to take additional measures for the support of the labour world underlining that "we are very closely monitoring what is happening, mostly in the labour market and we are ready, if necessary, to take additional measures to support the labour sector something that was, from the beginning of the crisis, our first and top priority."
