  • [01] PM confers with FinMin on economy

    Prime minister Costas Karamanlis on Monday discussed the course of the economy and planning of economic policy for the new period, in view of the Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF) with national economy and finance minister George Alogoskoufis.

    The prime minister traditionally unveils the government's economic policy for the following year at the TIF in mid-September, while the political party leaders present their views separately throughout the first week of the Fair.

    Alogoskoufis told reporters after the meeting that the government remained devoted to boosting economic growth and increasing employment and social cohesion.

    He stressed that the ongoing policy of reforms would be continued on the basis of the mild fiscal policy, which the minister said remained the government's basic strategy.

    Alogoskoufis said that despite the major problems inherited by the current government, the situation was improving and the problems were confrontable.

    The minister also announced that the bill providing for the imposition of a 19 percent VAT on real estae would be released Tuesday, or at the latest Wednesday, for public perusal.

    The event will be held in September 2006 at the OAKA Olympic sports complex.
