The evaluation of Greece’s economic program must be completed as soon as possible because it may be Greece’s last chance, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said in an interview with Huffington Post Editor-in-Chief Arianna Huffington on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos on Friday.

“The evaluation must be completed as soon as possible. Expedience is part of this program’s strategy to success,” Tsipras was quoted as saying during the interview published on thr website of Huffington Post Greece.

“A successful and timely evaluation, which will lead quickly to a deal about the debt, will also bring about the reinstatement of trust, a rapid return to development and a complete change of mindset. I hope and wish that we do not lose this, possibly last, chance for Greece,” he added.

Commenting about Greece’s European partners, he said that they seem to understand this, as they also have to deal with an unprecedented refugee crisis which is also heavily affecting the country.

“Everything points to Greece being able to bounce back. As long as the mistakes of the past are not repeated,” the premier told Huffington.

however, having three different institutions contribute to negotiations is no easy feat, Tsipras noted, especially when those various institutions differ on their evaluations. “I hope that the many disagreements and conflicts between the institutions do not become the excuse for unacceptable delays that would invalidate the great opportunity for a Grecovery,” he said.
