Mitsotakis: First political priority is to attract 100 bln euro in investments in the next few years

The first political priority is for Greece to attract 100 billion euros of investments in the next few years, main opposition New Democracy leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis said on Tuesday during an investment conference organised by the Hellenic Federation of Enterprises (SEV).

He noted that Greek society does not link investments with the positive benefits to society, but it means, as he stressed, more and better jobs and for this reason high rates of implementation of a coherent investment plan are imperative.

Mitsotakis stressed that investments are necessary to create more and better jobs and that a growth rate of 4% of GDP is needed to cover the investment gap over seven years. In order for investments to come – he said – a determined government and a state administration are needed to make investments a top political priority.

“Nothing makes us believe that investments are a top priority of the current government,” he added.
