Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras arrives for a parliament session of Syriza party lawmakers at the Greek Parliament in AthensRestoring economic stability and a return to growth, combined with substantial debt relief and public administration reforms are the government’s priorities, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said on Monday while presented the government’s policy statements in Parliament. All the above, while simultaneously stamping out corruption “are the only safe way to exit the crisis and supervision,” Tsipras said.

“Today we have succeeded in securing the country’s economic stability and to finally end the discussion on a grexit,” he added, noting that the new deal with Greece’s creditors created an indisputably more favourable fiscal framework, with margins to use resources to support growth.

Tsipras stressed that the government’s goal was to pave the way for a new economic growth model, one that was progressive and different from that of classic neoliberalism.

The prime minister said that the government’s goal was to restore liquidity within the next 20 months, by the first half of 2017, as well as the country’s ability to borrow from the markets.

He also stressed the need to proceed with the first review of the Greek programme without delay, “even though it contains difficult and in some cases deleterious measures.”

A successful conclusion of the review would be the key that unlocked the door to vital debt relief and a bank recapitalisation to protect deposits and clear the banking system of non-performing loans, he said.

The three-day debate on the government’s policy statements will culminate in a vote of confidence in the government at midnight on Wednesday night.
