PM Mitsotakis: We are a gov’t that likes to solve problems

Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, who is visiting the city of Tripolis, on Monday had a meeting with representatives of 18 companies from the Peloponnese that employ 8,375 workers between them and have an investment plan of 850 million euros in the region of the Peloponnese in the next few years.

As the prime minister said at the start of the meeting, “in Tripolis we drew up this Growth Plan precisely in order to determine the need for a cohesive plan at a regional level, which which combine several financial tools and follow a uniform logic”.

According to Mitsotakis, a top priority must be the inclusion in the network of units that can use renewable energy (RES) in order to reduce production costs, while adding that this must be the country’s comparative advantage and that “the sooner it is done, the more competitive Greece will be”.

“We are a government,” Mitsotakis said, “that likes to solve real problems. Many problems are horizontal, others are too specialised. You know, however, that you are talking with interlocutors that are willing to listen and understand how the real economy works”.

He called on the company representatives to state their main issues and the challenges they are facing because “we know very well that growth without productive investments cannot exist”.

Mitsotakis visited the pharmaceutical industry DEMO, an entirely Greek industrial concern with 85 pct of its production exported to 85 countries and over 1,200 employees. Afterwards, he visited the Recycling Company POKAS ARKADIKI.

The premier also visited the region of the Peloponnese and met with regional governor Panagiotis Nikos and thanked the region’s leadership for their important work.

Later, Mitsotakis toured the city of Tripolis. accompanied by its mayor Konstantinos Tzioumis.
