The leader of the main opposition party Kyriakos Mitsotakis has welcomed the outcome of Monday’s Eurogroup, but estimated that the short-term debt relief measures are insufficient.

During his tour in the area of Metamorfosi, the New Democracy leader noted that the while the government is celebrating for the outcome, Greek businesses are struggling under the pressure of excessive taxation. The debt relied is welcome, but insufficient to maintain Greece on a sustainable growth track.

Furthermore Mr. Mitsotakis commented that SMEs are facing many problems aside of the excessive taxation, such as high energy costs and ambiguity regarding the use of land. The ND leader called for a clear national growth plan for Greek property that may help boost the economy by attracting investments and creating well-paid jobs.
