“The Greek economy is becoming stronger and continues to grow, day by day. According to the latest data from ELSTAT, the real GDP of Greece increased 2.1% in the first quarter of 2024 in comparison with the first quarter of 2023 and 2.9% at annual rates. At the same time, the nominal GDP of our country reached the highest level since the second quarter of 2010. In addition, investments increased by 7.1% compared to the last quarter of 2023,” Deputy Minister to the Prime Minister and government spokesperson Pavlos Marinakis said on Friday.

“The government’s stable and prudent economic policy has resulted in the creation of 400,000 new jobs, the reduction of the number of unemployed below 900,000 for the first time in 13 years and a gradual increase in workers’ earnings. The hike in prices that affects all citizens cannot be dealt with either by ‘money trees’, or by ‘magic recipes’. It requires a plan and reforms that increase the country’s GDP, create jobs and gradually increase disposable income. We have begun to reduce the great distance that separates us from Europe and, with even more decisive steps, we will continue tirelessly in this direction”, Marinakis pointed out.

Concluding, he said that “today’s news fills us with optimism that we will be able to reach our two big goals: to further reduce unemployment, reaching the European average, and that by the end of our four-year term, the minimum wage will be at 950 euros a month and the average wage at 1500 euros a month, as we have pledged”.
