  • [01] Spokesman on economy

    Government spokesman George Petalotis, speaking during Monday's press briefing, said that 2010 will be the year for the implementation of the major structural changes that the government has already promoted from the first days of governance.

    The spokesman added that 2010 "shall be a milestone year for the restoration of the country's shaken prestige and credibility at international and European level."

    Petalotis stressed that the government "is focused absolutely on its commitments for the recovery of the economy, support for low and medium-level incomes, backing for education, the upgrading of the health system, the restructuring of the social state and a state of law."

    Also referring to the tax system, he said that "our aim is not simply another tax bill, but a fair, stable amd effective tax system that will distribute tax burdens on the citizens in a fair and proportional way, that will reward those who are tax consistent and will not burden the low and medium-level incomes."

    On the question of the stability programme, Petalotis pointed out that it will constitute our "road map" to exit from the crisis, to reduce monetary deficits and curb the debt.

    The spokesman also said that an EU Commission delegation would be arriving in Athens in the coming days for talks on the Greek Stability Programme. A cabinet meeting is scheduled to approve the programme in mid-January which would be presented to the European Commission at the end of the month.
