  • [01] Tsipras urges business leaders to invest in Greece at Capital Link forum

    Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras reiterated his invitation to business leaders to invest in Greece during the 18th Annual Capital Link forum: Invest in Greece" held in New York, saying the country has turned a corner and is exceeding its economic targets.

    "Greece is being reborn. You should choose to be part of this rebirth. You can only benefit from this choice," Tsipras said in a message delivered through a webcast, aimed at presenting the new prospects that have opened up for the Greek economy.

    "I am certain that those who attempted it have not regretted it today, because during 2016, our economy regained its positive growth dynamic, outperformed its fiscal targets and implemented a series of structural reforms which boosted its competitiveness and promote a stable, investor-friendly environment," he said.

    Tsipras went on to present the forecasts for the Greek economy, saying it is expected to grow 2.7 percent in 2017 and 3.1 percent in 2018. "In recognition of our efforts, the recent Eurogroup of December 5 decided to implement the short-term measures for debt relief, in line with the agreement last May, and is expected to access the markets in 2017," he said.

    "Therefore, this year I renew my invitation towards you."

    [02] Digital policy minister says new TV regulator will have government's full support

    The new board of Greece's TV regulator, the National Council for Radio and Television (NCRTV), will have full financial and technical support for its operation, Digital Policy Minister Nikos Pappas said on Monday during a meeting with NCRTV's new heads.

    "I gave the leadership of the Council my personal commitment on behalf of the government that they will have full support, both on a financial level and in terms of human resources," he said after meeting NCRTV president Athanasios Koutroumanos and vice-chair Rodolfos Moronis.

    "I noted that our work to regulate the television landscape is under the watchful eye of the Greek society and democracy itself, which demand of us to speed up the procedures for the licensing of the private television stations," he added.
