Skourletis: The government is in favour of investments, but on conditions
The government is in favour of investments, but with terms and conditions, Environment and Energy Minister Panos Skourletis said in statements to MEGA TV on the investment in Skouries, Halkidiki, which was suspended.
As he said, the company was involved in a “political game” in order to blackmail the government and estimated that their decision may be related to the drop of the prices of gold.
Regarding the issue of farmers, he said that “these are not new measures, but already announced measures.” As for the social security changes, he spoke of a reform process that is due to the PSI or structured bonds. He insisted, however, that the government’s proposal focuses on not reducing pensions.
On reports for an extension to the Greek programme review, he underlined that this is not part of the agreement and asked to re-examine the IMF role in the Greek programme.
