“This year we are at a turning point and the next months are the most critical ones, because they will mark the turn of the economy to growth,” Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said on Thursday welcoming producers from Thessaloniki and Northern Greece ahead of the 81st Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF) on September 10-11.
Tsipras underlined the importance of producing wealth from this growth, but to be distributed in a fair way on healthy and productive forces of the economy.
The prime minister noted that the “next day” for the economy is approaching as the next five months will determine the debate on debt relief. “This may allow us to be included in the ECB’s quantitative easing program, which of course will mark a new era, after six years of great difficulties,” he said.
According to Tsipras, the main aim of the government, beyond the development course and the normalization of the economy, is the creation of jobs. He said that “Northern Greece can become the engine of production and reconstruction and we must support this effort, not with words but with actions.” “We want allies in this great effort for the recovery and productive reconstruction,” he added.
