  • [01] Simitis says in message national gains through struggles must be safeguarded

    26/10/2003 21:29:43

    Prime Minister Costas Simitis, in a message on Sunday marking Tuesday's national holiday commemorating the outbreak of the war with Italy on October 28, 1940, said that ''the era of 1940 has taught us that all that have been gained through struggles and sacrifices would be in danger if we do not have the foresight to stabilise our gains.''

    The prime minister said that ''today, Greece is strong enough to confront new challenges and the relentless facts in the sector of the economy, with a high growth rate, with visible prospects for an increase in employment, with strong prerequisites for the real economic and social convergence with our advanced partners in the European Union, with planning and action for organised social care and protection for the sensitive groups of the population.''

    Parliament President Apostolos Kaklamanis and political parties also issued their messages on the occasion.

    [02] Finance minister says economy improving considerably

    26/10/2003 21:27:28

    Finance and Economy Minister Nikos Christodoulakis, speaking to the Greek Radio and Television Corporation's (ERT) television station in Crete on Sunday and referring to a speech by main opposition New Democracy party leader Costas Karamanlis, accused ND of trading on dangers regarding the economy and added that elections will be held at the end of the four-year term.

    ''In past years inflation has been decreasing and it is approaching the European average more. All macroeconomic indicators, particularly that of the public debt, are showing a considerable improvement. The public debt in our country this year will be the lowest in the past 10 years at least,'' he said.

    Christodoulakis went on to say ''all these are signs of a considerable improvement of the Greek economy. New Democracy does not see this improvement and is trading on dangers and describing the progress and prospects of the economy, using only the colour of grey.''
