  • [01] PM addresses new Cabinet

    (ANA-MPA) -- Prime Minister George Papandreou on Friday addressed the first meeting of his new cabinet immediately after it was sworn-in.

    "We are still at a turning point, in the middle of a tough negotiation that will determine the country's future and we are called to reach a viable solution to an immediate and major national problem - namely, the debt problem that threatens to ruin us, destroying the lives of millions of Greeks -- while guaranteeing that this course will be safe and reliable," Papandreou said.

    He said that a restart is being made through the new government, stressing that the previous government performed a "monumental, impressive and historic work".

    Papandreou referred specifically to former finance minister George Papaconstantinou, stressing that "he shouldered unthinkable burden in crucial times for the country" and said that his work was of national importance, adding that he "honored the country and government by giving tough battles".

    [02] ND urges measures to boost liquidity

    (ANA-MPA) -- Main opposition New Democracy on Friday urged the new Finance Minister Evangelos Venizelos to immediately take measures to boost liquidity in the markets while noting that ND did not expect him to substantially change the policies of his predecessor.

    ND spokesman Yiannis Mihelakis called on Venizelos to immediate take five steps that would direct more funds to the real economy. Among these he listed:

    Launching an initiative to use the capabilities offered by the European Investment Bank and the World Bank;

    Once again setting in motion major concessions projects, such as the five major highways that were virtually stalled;

    Speeding up absorption of National Strategic Reference Framework (NSRF) funds;

    Proceeding to offset business debts to and from the public sector (taxes versus VAT refunds);

    and take steps to continue the provision of guarantees to the Greek banking system from the European Central Bank for at least another year, so that these funds might reach the real economy.

    "All these actions have to be done immediately in order to give the necessary injection of liquidity into a market that needs it vitally," Mihelakis stressed. (ANA-MPA)
