V. Korkidis: Government reshuffle is pointless unless economic policy changes

The government reshuffle will be pointless unless the devastating blend of the institutions’ economic policies that has resulted in the current gloomy economic situation changes, Vasilis Korkidis, president of Hellenic Confederation of Commerce and Entrepreneurship (ESEE), said on Tuesday.

“The priorities of the new government is the reduction of over-taxation, the settlement of the internal debt market, liquidity, the social security system, the social dialogue and the establishment of fair and friendly business environment, so that small and medium sized companies implement initiatives that will boost employment and competitiveness. But under current circmstances our prior actions to the institutions remain wishful thinking as long as the memorandum policies of the creditors are not reshuffled,” he underlined.
