  • [01] Economy is thriving, Papantoniou says after meeting PM

    30/08/2001 13:07:10

    The Greek economy is thriving and the eurozone 'wager' has been won, National Economy Minister Yiannos Papantoniou said on Thursday, as he emerged from a meeting with Prime Minister Costas Simitis.

    The meeting focused on the Greek economy's performance, which Papantoniou said was good. Specifically, he said the rate of growth in Greece for 2002 was expected to be twice the EU average, while public debt was expected to shrink and inflation to stay low.

    With respect to a package of social and welfare measures planned by the government, Papantoniou said final decisions on this would be made when the cabinet met next Tuesday.
