  • [01] PM Tsipras: Greece must act now to enter the fourth industrial revolution

    Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras announced the establishment of the General Secretariat of Digital Policy on Wednesday during a speech at the 2016 Digital Economy Forum, saying that Greece must not lose a historic opportunity to enter the fourth industrial revolution.

    "We have to make the big leap towards knowledge economy and our universities can accomplish this, which is proven by the graduates of our universities who excel abroad," Tsipras said at the event organized by the Hellenic Association of Information Technology Companies.

    He acknowledged that more steps are needed in this direction, such as the preparation of a digital strategy, but noted that important steps have already been made. The government is willing to unleash the potential of the digital economy which was not treated with due attention in previous years, a fact that had effects on the economy, he added.

    "If we cooperate correctly we can built a framework that will allow the economy's potential to take off through the utilization of information and communications," he said.

    Tsipras also noted that the country needs a national plan for digital policy which will be based on institutions and respect and protect digital rights, while also providing the young with the opportunity to work and innovate in Greece.

    "This is proven by those who are in our country and operate often without a capital, but have achieved significant results," he said.
