In this interview, the Premier noted that Greece’s growth is “much faster than the Eurozone average,” and that this will see even faster growth in 2023, “as foreign investments surpass record after record, with Greece having risen above difficult predicaments.”

“I see myself as a student of Democracy,” he added, and that he is “a liberal politician, but in the sense of the classical 19th century Liberalism.”

On the national elections due in 2023, he said that “citizens will weigh up all the good things the government has done against the mistakes. If I see an error, it’s my job to speak up about it and do what I can to fix it. And that is exactly what I am doing.”
