The new Minister of Economy and Development Dimitris Papadimitriou underlined that his goal is to attract investments by taking advantage of the monetary stability that Greece offers as a Eurozone member.

The aim is to inspire trust and send the message that Greece is friendly towards investments and that the economy is open to the investors. As a Eurozone member, he announced, Greece offers access to the EU market and has a highly skilled workforce.

Later on at the handover ceremony, he underlined that he will have a close cooperation with other productive ministries and the private sector. Mr. Papadimitriou also praised the efforts of his predecessor Giorgos Stathakis and pledged to “roll up our sleeves and start the hard work”.
