  • [01] 'Nothing will stop changes and reforms', Karamanlis reaffirms

    "Nothing will stop the ongoing changes and reforms, the government's reforms strategy is continuing unwaveringly", Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis reaffirmed on Sunday, speaking in the central city of Larissa at his ruling New Democracy (ND) party's pre-congress for central Greece and Thessaly.

    He said that the substantive reform in the agricultural sector was ensuring a new developmental prospect, creating new opportunities in the productive process, and adding new jobs, and outlined in depth the relevant actions his government was taking in all the peripheries.

    Karamanlis explained that the government was encouraging and actively supporting the organisation of the agricultural sector on the basis of the principles of entrepreneurship, the creation of competitive farming exploitations, the production of organic farming and animal-breeding products, the implementation of integrated management systems, the projection and promotion of farm products, the strengthening of the human capital through appropriate orientation and systematic state assistance, the foundation of inter-professional organisations and boosting of the producer groups, the creation of the necessary infrastructures through the construction of reservoirs and irrigation works, protection of the environment and the natural resources, adaptation of production to the particularities and advantages of each region, the restructuring of large cultivations, support of local cultivations that produce traditional quality products, and the development of parallel economic activities such as agro-tourism and standardisation of farm products.

    The prime minister referred to the intensive pace at which the projects on the national highway network were progressing, stressing that the lethal "horseshow" on the Malliakos Gulf stretch of the national highway was being converted into a modern highway of European standards, while the tender for the major project at Tempi and Platamonas was in the final stage, the contract for the construction of the Central Greece axis has been signed and construction would begin in September, the "strategic" project that will cross the Thessaly plane was set to commence, the Larisa-Trikala and Larisa-Karditsa sections of the national highway were being upgraded, and a bypass of the town of Volos was also under construction.
