    Prime-minister George Papandreou, who will meet with social sectors, is expected to announce on Tuesday a package of measures to boost employment and support the unemployed. Reports say the program will mount to 2.3 billion euros will be included in the OAED plan but it will be also subsidized by ESPA. In his speech during today's meeting of the Ministers' Council, Mr. Papandreou underlined that the government has a plan and strategy and it is proving it with deeds.

    "We are building up confidence to Greek economy so as 2011 to be the last year of recession", the Prime-minister said and blamed opposition parties for projecting their anti-memorandum hypocrisy, underestimating Greek people.

    Mr. Papandreou also referred to November, 7 local administration elections, stressing the historical importance of this election procedure as it regards materialization of "Kallikratis" plan.

    Draft-bill determining disappropriation and compensation of property owners of land where the Burgas-Alexandropolis pipe-line will go through was presented during Monday's meeting of the Ministers' Council.

    Reports say that the Prime-minister spoke of "significant project" and added that the draft-bill proves that Greece really wants and does not raise obstacles for its materialization. There is close cooperation with the Russian side.

    A debate will be soon held on Culture Ministry draft-bill on cinema, which was among draft-bills presented. Its axis is based on 4 terms: more money- more financing sources-less bureaucracy- support creativity.

    Environment Minister, Tina Birbilis presented draft-bill on wastes, with which Greece incorporates EU instructions and establishes procedures for its management.

    [02] Reports on Batopedi Case this Afternoon

    Monday, 18 October 2010 15:40

    View Comments

    Political parties, participating in Inquiry Committee investigating Vatopedi case, are to announce their reports in the next hours. Reports say that all political parties agree on political responsibilities of involved ministers and undersecretaries but object on the penal responsibilities. New Democracy party has walked out of the committee , speaking of political persecution.

    Different Approaches

    Reports say that PASOK group, participating in the Inquiry Committee, consider certain reference to justice of former ministers, Basiakos, Dukas and Kontos while some expressed doubts about Roussopoulos and Bulgarakis. But the majority believes all 5 government officials during ND ruling will be referred to justice.

    The GCP is certainly expected to refer Basiakos, Dukas, Kontos.

    LAOS will hand its report but is considering not to propose reference to justice as crimes have been written off. LAOS is likely to attribute responsibilities to specific persons if crimes have not been written off.

    SYRIZA considers unlikely not to refer to justice at least three former ministers who signed decisions but it is highly concerned over diverging views about written off crimes.

    The Judicial Council will take the final decision under the light of developments in penal procedure.

    ND blames PASOK for predetermined political persecutions.

    Finance Minister, George Papakonstantinou, who will attend Eurogroup and Ecofn meetings on Monday and Tuesday, is expected to refer to the implementation of the stability program in Greece. EU Finance Ministers Council are expected to hold informal talks on 2011draft budget and release of Eurostat revision of 2009 deficit.

    Deficit Revision to Be Announced this Week

    The issue, however, will lear on Friday when Eurostat will announce Euro- region member states fiscal data for 2006-2009.

    Reports say final figure for Greece's revised deficit for 2009 is near 15% of GDP.

    Revision of 2009 data is likely to have a negative impact on 2010 state deficit and state debt but government officials reassure that there would not be need for new measures to achieve targets set.

    "Even if Greece's government change, the memorandum will remain", said Eurogroup head Jean-Claude Juncker, expressing satisfaction at the effective measures the government has taken.

    Five months after the signing of the memorandum and all have recognized Greece's efforts which has regained to a significant extent its lost credibility, Greece's representative to the IMF Panagiotis Rumeliotis told state radio NET 105.8 .

    "Any extension of time for repayment of debt will be a gesture to reward Greece for its efforts to tidy its state finances", he added.
