Dragasakis – Economy Ministry oversees growth strategy

The Economy and Development Ministry is in reality a ministry that coordinates the growth strategy of the country and operates as a ministry of investments, said government Vice-President and Economy and Development Minister Yiannis Dragasakis on Wednesday.

Speaking at the ceremony held to welcome new deputy minister Stathis Giannakidis, Dragasakis said the target of the government is for growth to have an impact on the job market, income levels and the everyday lives of the people and in that respect, we still have work ahead of us.

The minister went on to add that the changes to the cabinet will contribute to the faster implementation of government planning and provide for better growth.
