Those who work in innovation and new technologies are the new pioneers, bringing the Greek economy in line with technological developments, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said on Monday at the “Digital Economy Forum 2018” held in Athens.

“The people who are involved in innovation and new technologies are the new pioneers, the critical group of people connecting the Greek economy with the future of innovation and technological developments,” Tsipras said at the forum organized by the Federation of Hellenic Information Technology & Communications Enterprises (SEPE).

Digital transformation, the prime minister said, touches several aspects of daily life. “All transactions between people and businesses with the state will be carried through one gateway, simply and fast, from people’s homes or office, through a mobile phone or a tablet,” Tsipras said. The new digital gate will make the public sector “modern and flexible, based on thecommunication of all state information systems,” he noted.
