Tsipras Accuses Gov’t of Indifference Toward Small Businesses

September 14, 2022

ATHENS – Main opposition SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras accused the government and Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis of indifference to small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in a meeting he had with the board of the National Confederation of Commerce and Entrepreneurship on Wednesday.

“It was not by chance that there was no mention of small and medium entrepreneurship in the announcements made at the Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF),” Tsipras commented, according to party sources, and this is because “small and medium entrepreneurship has no place in the government’s policy.”

“We may disagree on what measures one can take to support an industry, but if we don’t believe that this industry has a reason to exist, that is a structural disagreement,” Tsipras noted, denouncing the “attitude of indifference” of the government for SMEs.


ATHENS - Still uncertain about the level of supplies this winter from Russia in the fallout over the invasion of Ukraine, Greece's gas utility DEPA signed a deal with French energy giant TotalEnergies to get more liquefied natural gas (LNG) in case.
