“If we continue like this, then we will have a very good performance in the field of economy,” said the Minister of Development and Investment, Adonis Georgiadis.
“Our country has become an example to be imitated”, underlined the Minister of Development and Investment, Adonis Georgiadis, during his speech at the 8th Development Conference, co-organized in Patras by the newspaper “Peloponnisos” and the region of Western Greece.
He added that during a meeting on the role of the regions in the development of the country, strategic investments and the new development law, “if we continue like this, that is, as we had a very good performance in the field of health and how to deal with the health crisis, then We will have a very good performance in the field of economy as well. “
However, as he later pointed out, “I am not saying that we will have growth, we will have a recession,” which, as he estimated, “will be less than many other countries in the Eurozone.”
At the same time, the Minister of Development and Investment referred to the investment of Elliniko, which, as he noted, “will be a model for other similar large investments, which are expected to be implemented in the region, as soon as in Crete.”
He also stressed that “the indicators of both entrepreneurship and the economy had begun to improve after the long economic crisis and if quarantine had not intervened, then surely the position of our country would be much better today.”
During the dialogue that Adonis Georgiadis had, with representatives of regions, but also businessmen, he noted that in recent years very big steps have been taken, both in the direction of reducing bureaucracy and in strengthening the institutions of self-government, with the aim of implementation of investments.
For his part, the Secretary General of Private Investment and PPP, Nikos Mantzoufas, discussed with the representatives of the regions, about the opportunities, but also the problems that exist in the design and implementation of PPP and other investments, emphasizing that they are basic tools for developing a series of infrastructure needed by the country’s region.
