SEV chairman welcomes Eurogroup decision to end 2nd review as ‘extremely positive’

The Chairman of the Hellenic Federation of Enterprises (SEV) Theodoros Fessas on Friday welcomed the completion of the 2nd review of the Greek programme, decided by the Eurogroup on Thursday night, saying that it marked an end to uncertainty for the Greek economy.

“The completion of the 2nd review is an extremely positive development. It removes uncertainty from the Greek economy and allows us to plan the future with relative confidence,” he said, while noting that reform efforts must not just continue but intensify, “as part of an ambitious growth strategy”.

“Greek companies are ready to undertake investment initiatives that will act as a catalyst for economic growth, working to create jobs and incomes. We all now know what is required and it is up to us to implement it without any further unnecessary delays,” he added.
