  • [01] Karamanlis briefed by FM Bakoyannis

    Greek Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis was briefed by Foreign Minister Dora Bakoyannis on Thursday at his Maximos Mansion office in Athens. Afterwards, Karamanlis was due to receive Employment and Social Insurances Minister Fani Palli-Petralia.

    One day earlier, the Prime Minister reiterated that he is determined to proceed with necessary reforms for the country, speaking during a reception by the Athens Chamber of Industry and Commerce.

    "During a difficult and fluid international juncture, the Greek economy is on the right course, indicating that it has a strong growth rate allowing us to confront any challenges."

    Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis met on Wednesday with Economy and Finance Minister George Alogoskoufis at the Maximos Mansion in Athens. Alogoskoufis stated after the meeting that they discussed the course of the government's reform work planned for the New Year. He stated that 2008 will be a crucial year for the materialization of the government programme on development, employment and social cohesion considering the uncertainty in global economy. The finance minister stated that the government will continue its reform programme in the wider public sector, development and employment. The Greek economy, said Alogoskoufis, is protected by the policy measures implemented by the government during the past few years and the state budget approved in Parliament.
