ATHENS – Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, accompanied by the president of the Athens Trade Association Stavros Kafounis, on Thursday visited the commercial "heart of Athens," where he talked to shopkeepers and citizens about the reopening of the market.

Mitsotakis spoke with traders and, according to government sources, "listened to their concerns and asked about their work."

According to the same sources, "many workers thanked Kyriakos Mitsotakis for the effective management of the health crisis and at the same time conveyed to him the difficulties faced by their businesses due to the effects of the pandemic."

The prime minister forecast that turnover will increase in the near future and, responding to the concerns of business people about the prospects of tourism, he pointed out that "we will find a way for people to come safely."

"I estimate that from the end of June we will have another picture," he added.

Mitsotakis was particularly interested in the implementation of health protection measures. He talked to security guards at the entrance of several stores, asked about the maximum number of customers depending on the area of each space and noted the observance of distances at cash registers.
