Greek Administrative Reform Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Wednesday pledged that “as of 2015 there will be no layoffs” in the public sector.
“We want a public sector that operates with less money, but more effectively,” he said on Greece’s ANT1 TV referring to his targets and the government’s negotiations with the Troika.
He made an extensive reference to taxes, noting that changes should be made in cases where current taxation measures are ineffective, citing the increase of the heating oil tax as an example.
Mitsotakis also spoke of state organizations that have not fully registered their personnel and respective salaries, despite the Ministry’s warnings. He made clear that the Ministry would not give a third extension to the whole process, adding that there will be sanctions for those who fail to comply.
