PM Tsipras: Europe must launch its growth agenda
The refugees issue is a European problem which needs to be dealt with collectively, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on Thursday said in his intervention at a panel within the framework of the World Economic Forum in Davos.
Tsipras referred to the humanitarian and political side of the problem, noting that is a disgrace that so many people die in the Aegean in their attempt to reach the Greek coasts. He underlined that the solution to the problem is all EU member states to cooperate.
He also referred to the Greek government’s effort to face corruption and bureaucracy problems stressing that only through growth will Greece be able to cope with the crisis and at the same time welcome foreign investments.
Europe must launch its growth agenda in order to proceed, said Tsipras and stressed the need to face the serious unemployment problems.
French Prime Minister Manuel Vals, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte and German Finance Minister Wofgang Schaeuble participated in the panel.
