Development and Investment Minister Adonis Georgiadis estimated on Saturday that 2022 will remain a good financial year for Greece, with investments continuing at a steady pace.
Georgiadis spoke at the ruling New Democracy (ND) party pre-conference held in Thessaloniki.
The minister also underlined his determination to intensify market controls and to combat profiteering wherever it is located.
“I pledge that 2022 will remain a good financial year for Greece, investments will continue at a steady pace, while trade missions travelling abroad return to Greece with signed agreements and new investments, which will create additional jobs and further reduce unemployment,” he added.
Georgiadis said that unemployment is now, for the first time in 13 years, below the psychological barrier of 12 pct, specifically at 11.9 pct, and noted that “it continues to fall steadily in 2022, despite the explosion of inflation, which is mainly the result of the war in Ukraine.”
