    A new relationship between growth and social protection, the building of a safety net meeting the needs of citizens and a sound social security system constitute the key points of a socialist policy nowadays, Prime Minister Costas Simitis said on Monday.

    Simitis addressed an event on "Progressive governance at the start of the century" at the University of Athens, also attended by his visiting Italian counterpart Massimo D'Alema.

    "We believe that in socialism there is considerable room for enlarging democracy. Democracy means participation and joint action by all... The difference between socialism and the conservative ideology concerns the quality of life and the rights of Man," he said.

    D'Alema said democracy and progressive governance are the two basic aspects of the Left in the face of globalisation nowadays.

    "We are being called upon to square the circle, harmonising the logic of production -and therefore competitiveness- with social justice, flexibility with guarantees regarding employment," he said.
