    [04] PM outlines government's main targets at party rally in Paros

    29/07/2001 23:33:28

    Prime Minister Costas Simitis, addressing a ruling PASOK party rally at Paroikia on the island of Paros on Sunday evening, said the government wants to build a steadfast and strong Greece in Europe in the decades to come, a Greece which will not return to the past, but which will win the present and conquer the future.

    "Greece in 2004 will have nothing to do with Greece in 1994, but it will also differ a great deal from 2000 Greece. Because the Greek people have given the go-ahead for change and Greece's modernisation," he said.

    Simitis also referred to the government's targets which concern the country's development.

    "The policy of PASOK is the guarantee that Greece shall not miss the European train of growth but, on the contrary, it will travel in a privileged position," he said.

    He further stressed that building a new social state is a target for PASOK.

    "The dilemma 'economic growth or a social state' is a false dilemma. We do not accept it. It is the economy that shall pay for the social state and it is the social state which will strengthen social cohesion and in this way it will safeguard economic growth," he said.

    At the end of his address, Simitis referred to PASOK's October congress, saying that it will preoccupy itself with the country's future and prospects.

    Earlier in the day, Simitis visited the Panagia Ekatontapyliani church on the island where he was given a guided tour by the Metropolitan of Paronaxia Amvrosios.
