  • [01] PASOK criticises gov't on Barroso's letter on 3rd CSF

  • [01] PASOK criticises gov't on Barroso's letter on 3rd CSF

    Main opposition Panhellenic Socialist Movement (PASOK) spokesman Nikos Athanassakis said on Thursday that "the government is attempting to soften the negative impressions over the cutback of the 3rd Community Support Framework (CSF) by 1.7 billion euros, as a solution of desparation to reduce the danger of loss of Community funds."

    Athanassakis was responding to a letter of reply on Tuesday by European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso to Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis regarding Greece's request for an additional year in which to absorb funds from the 3rd CSF.

    Barroso's letter counter-proposed a series of measures to be recorded in a "memorandum of understanding", which call for a revision of Greek programmes, joint funding by the Commission of uncompleted programmes until the year 2008 and others.

    According to Barroso, the measures listed would bring a total benefit of some 2.7 billion euros to Greece with respect to its Community contribution, which in general lines would be equivalent to an additional year of implementation of the 3rd CSF, while they will also assist in the speedier absorption during the remaining years until the end of 2008.

    "1.7 billion euros less in the 3rd CSF mean thousands of jobs less or the equivalent for the building of 17 hospitals," Athanassakis said.
