  • [01] First meeting of Interministerial Committee

    The newly-established Interministerial Committee on Economic Policy held its first meeting on Friday, during which it reviewed the international economic situation and discussed in detail the impact of the global financial crisis on Greece.

    Prime minister Costas Karamanlis announced late Thursday night the establishment of the Interministerial Committee on Economic Policy, which will be responsible for systematic monitoring and coordination of the government's policy in the sectors of the economy, finance and development.

    The prime minister himself is heading the committee, which also comprises economy and finance minister Yiannis Papathanassiou, development minister Costis Hatzigakis, and environment, town planning and public works minister George Souflias.

    Friday's first meeting was also attended by George Provopoulos, governor of the Bank of Greece, the country's central bank.

    Speaking to reporters after the two-hour meeting, Papathanassiou explained that the committee was set up due to the "critical economic conjuncture" that had hit the global economy and Greece, adding that coordination of actions and efforts was necessary in order to confront the crisis in the best possible way.

    He said there would be continuous monitoring of the developments in order to make the necessary adjustments to economic policy in the midst of the international developments.
