  • [01] PM Tsipras chairs meeting with ministers on refugees and summit

    Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras is currently chairing a meeting with ministers and his close associates at his office in parliament.

    [02] Economic stability will pave the way for debt restructuring, Economy Minister says

    "Today we start talks to complete the first review," Economy, Development and Tourism Minister George Stathakis said on Wednesday.

    Addressing a "Digital Economy Forum 2016 - The restart is digital", organized by the Federation of Information Technology and Communications Enterprises (SEPE), Stathakis said that the stabilisation of the economy, following the summer 2015 agreement, the two successful rounds of negotiations in autumn and the recapitalisation of Greek banks and completion of the first review of the Greek programme, will pave the way for a restructuring of the Greek debt and the return of the economy to growth in the second half of the year. He added that the Economy ministry will soon announce new actions in the framework of the 2014-2020 EU funds programme.

    He said that the ministry will soon table to Parliament a new regulatory framework for public procurement, unifying tender and public procurement regulations for all kind of projects, services and goods.

    He said that a new development plan for the country will be announced soon in agreement with the institutions.
