Tsipras Visits Evosmos, Talks with Local Shopkeepers

THESSALONIKI — "I hear the government talking about 24 billion euros. Where are they all?" main opposition SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras asked on Thursday, following his meetings with shop keepers in Evosmos, Thessaloniki.

The shopkeepers described the great difficulties they face on a daily basis since they reopened their shops after the lockdown to avoid spreading Covid-19.

Tsipras said the market needed to be supported with working capital and liquidity and said that SYRIZA will press the government to deliver, after shopkeepers complained that they did not have access to loans or faced steep interest rates for any loans received.

The main opposition leader walked about the Evosmos high street and spoke with several business owners, as well as with young people in the area. There was also a brief meeting with the mayor of Kordelio in Evosmos, Kleanthis Mandalianos.
