  • [01] PASOK Plan for ‚Green Development‚

    PASOK president G. Papandreou labeled "Green Development" as the only exit from the financial crisis, maintaining that the present situation reflects the end of an economic developmental model. G. Papandreou presented the three top priorities of PASOK integrated program for "Green Development" during a special event on Thursday in the presence of EU Commissioner for Environment, Stavros Dimas, the president of European Council for Renewable Sources of Energy, Arthuros Zerbos and representatives from local administration and organizations.

    In his speech, Mr. Papandreou stressed that the present crisis is directly linked with the end of an economic model that promoted development without guaranteeing viability and prosperity of our society. The financial crisis gives us the opportunity to reverse a developmental model that is fading away and go ahead with a development that sets limits to the greediness of an anarchist market and focuses on society and environment. It gives the opportunity to put an end to a state-spectator which hands state assets to the greediness of profiteers Mr. Papandreou said that green development means investments and new job positions in sectors building the country's future from construction to transport, tourism, agricultural products, clean energy, new technologies and culture. Green development is the only developmental option if the country wants to be competitive and viable in an extremely difficult and challenging international environment. Furthermore he stressed that green development is the only opportunity for the disengagement from today's Greek state clientele planning into green planning with participative energy production, participative economy and participative democracy. On his part, EU Commissioner for environment Stavros Dimas congratulated Mr. Papandreou for opening dialogue on green development and stressed that patriotism and environment go hand by hand. He also described Mr. Papandreou proposal for the creation of Green Fund as particularly important. Three Top Priorities First priority is climate and energy said Mr. Papandreou with transition to an economy reducing gas emissions till 2020 and disengagement from mineral fuels till 2050 through promotion of renewable sources of energy with specific policies for reasonable use of energy. Second priority is placed on radical reorganization in all production sectors, in agriculture, fishery, tourism, culture with transition from the era of mass production, low quality and cost to the era of quality. Third priority is placed on natural resources, forests, natural reserves, waters and refuse as well as green infrastructures in transport and state environment.
