Ιούλιος 2011

EDITORIAL


Aristomenis (Aris) M. Syngros
Executive Chairman

June has been a trying and tumultuous month for Greece and the Greek government which, faced with a difficult agenda, succeeded in parliament by winning a crucial vote of confidence, passing a needed austerity package coupled with an aggressive privatisation plan, and a voting for its implementation. This far-reaching vote paves the way for Greece to continue with a necessary and vast structural reform programme that will redefine economic development in a country that has experienced bureaucratic inefficiencies, opacity, a lax taxation regime, excessive public spending and a bloated public sector.
