Administrative Reform Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis met today with Finance Minister Gikas Hardouvelis in order to discuss the reforms and dismissals, ahead of the Troika meeting in Paris next week.
According to information, the two men discussed the issue of redundancies in the public sector. The government is committed to fulfill its Troika agreement for 15,000 redundancies in the public sector and another 400 recruits by the Finance Ministry, through the process of ASEP, for the tax offices.
According to a top Administrative Reform Ministry official, the scheduled layoffs are estimated to take place as planned.
Mitsotakis had declared earlier to Greek TV channel “Skai” that “The aim of dismissals should be fulfilled because it is a government commitment and will prevent further ones.”
