Tsipras Visits the Agricultural University of Athens

ATHENS – Main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance leader Alexis Tsipras visited the Agricultural University of Athens on Friday, where he held meetings with the university’s rector Prof. Spyros Kintzios, specialising in food biotechnology and development, and its senate. The meeting was held in light of the recent surge in prices and the danger of shortages of even staple foods in the Greek market.

“I had the opportunity to be briefed by the rector and the academic community of the Agricultural University on the risks the country is facing. The risk for food security and sufficiency of food and the need to plan ahead with respect to agricultural production,” Tsipras said after the meeting.

He criticised the fact that the primary sector’s percentage contribution to the economy has been declining in recent years, saying it revealed “a lack of strategy”, and underlined that “no economy can be depend only on services, no matter how robust this sector, especially of tourism.”
