Purchase Relief Measures Coming for Greece’s Forgotten Young

ATHENS – Greece’s young population, restless under-30’s often trapped at home during two lockdowns over a year that limited time outside will be getting discounts to buy tickets to movies and concerts – that aren’t open yet – but also to buy computers and electronic equipment.

That is under a continuation of the Digital Care program that’s been limited to students but now will be extended to other young by the New Democracy government which said it’s designed to offset the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The plan that is being developed at the behest of Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis provides for targeted aid and other unspecified and unclear packages to help the young, said Kathimerini, with few details known.

It’s being put together by Digital Governance Minister Kyriakos Pierrakakis, Deputy Minister to the Prime Minister Akis Skertsos and Minister of State Theodoros Livanios and will involve five ministries.

It will also provide as yet unclarified benefits in the realm of tourism ahd will offer apprenticeship programs for digital skills, grants, the upgrading of vocational training and the support of young scientists.

There will also be changes for those serving in the military so that they can acquire certified professional skills although it wasn’t said what they will be with few specifics being reported yet.
