  • [01] Boosting economic growth, competitiveness and employment opportunities key objectives, labour minister says

    Minister of Labour and Social Protection Panos Panayiotopoulos emphasised that labour reforms aimed at boosting economic growth, competitiveness and employment opportunities will continue, in comments he made after meeting with Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis on Thursday morning.

    He said that unemployment was down roughly 1 percentage point compared with 2004, noting that New Democracy came into office inheriting an unemployment rate of 11.3% from the then PASOK government.

    Panayiotopoulos stressed that reforms need to continue in order to further reduce the unemployment rate, which at slighly above 10%, is still too high.

    He accused main opposition PASOK of achieving the impossible: managing to allow unemployment to reach 11.3% when the country had an average economic growth rate well above the EU average.

    Asked to comment on social security reform, the minister reiterated the government's position regarding its insistence on an ongoing dialogue between relevant agencies and authorities and political parties.

    The objective regarding social security reform is to protect the system and keep it in tact for future generations, he said.
