  • [01] ND leader Samaras tours TIF

    Main opposition New Democracy party leader Antonis Samaras toured the pavilions of the 75th Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF) on Saturday and said the "great prerequisites for the Greek economy" are "competitiveness" and "extroversion" to show that Greek businesses have in them the seed and the strength to be competitive internationally.

    Samaras said "we came here for this reason to support the Greek business, in difficult times, in tough times. And to say at the same time that there is an amazing human potential to be utilised, that can really achieve great things when it finds the suitable incentives and the suitable ground."

    The ND leader further said "what is necessary in our view is competitiveness everywhere. However, we are in a period where the people are suffocating and choking in this dimension, an economic policy that is neither aligned with the possibilities that we would have, nor with the dreams that we want to have, nor with the future that we are seeking."

    Samaras referred to the address he will be making later in the evening on the economy. He congratulated the employees and the staff of the international exhibition, stressing that "we received a picture of the great possibilities appearing for the Greek economy, if we all act together and we all decide together that what is necessary is competitiveness."

    Samaras began his visit to the TIF from the administration building where he met with the boards of HELEXPO and TIF. He then visited the pavilion of the Thessaloniki municipality, as well as the city's new town hall later on, where he was welcomed by the mayor Vassilis Papageorgopoulos.

    He was also given a guided tour of the pavilions of the fire brigade and the police and of the city's newspapers "MAKEDONIA" and "ANGELIOFOROS, as well as of the prefecture's pavilion where he was met by the prefect Panayiotis Psomiadis.

    Samaras will be giving a press conference at noon on Sunday.
