Economy Minister Dragasakis: We are in final straight before memorandum exit

We are in the final straight before exiting the memorandum, said Economy and Development Minister Yiannis Dragasakis on Wednesday.

Speaking at a Syriza party event, Dragasakis spoke about fair growth without problems from the past highlighting that we are not at the finishing line yet.

In regards to banks, he said that the fear has gone and that checks have shown that they are secure.

Dragasakis also referred to the government’s priorities, highlighting that red loans must be reduced to free up the banking system and allow lenders to finance small to medium sized enterprises.

“The last review must be completed, in which the issues are manageable, and more importantly, we must have our own growth plan,” he said.
