  • [01] Reichenbach to AMNA: No more words, but action

    AMNA---European Commission Task Force chief Horst Reichenbach said he was very satisfied with the new coalition government's determination for the structural reforms to proceed, adding that this was the first time he ascertained this in Greece, in statements to AMNA on Thursday on the sidelines of an exports conference in Athens.

    Reichenbach, who left Greece after the conference, said of his first contacts with the new Greek government that there was a clear determination on the part of the government to act, and the will existed to proceed with the reforms, at a degree that he has not seen to now in Greece. There is also a sense of urgency, that the success and the results must come quickly, he said, adding that there was an open disposition to continue with the Task Force a very constructive cooperation, for the provision of technical assistance, which is offered by many EU member states and man international organisations to the Greek authorities.amna

    He said he was very satisfied, and that all the sides clarified the changes and progress they are seeking, as well as how the Task Force, on its part, can contribute to attaining those targets.amna

    The next step, he continued, is that now all that has been agreed needs to be applied. No more words, the words need to be put into action, Reichenbach said, adding that the conference showed that the business world wants a facilitation of exports, simplification of the procedures, and this will have a positive impact on the business climate.amna

    Asked what the first priority is for the Greek economy, Reichenbach said it is the Greek government that will determine the priorities, and the Task Force «is here to back them".
