The Greek government’s “main goal remains high growth that will far exceed the European average,” noted Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis at the Hellenic Federation of Enterprises (SEV) general assembly meeting on Tuesday evening, ANA reports.

The premier participated in a moderated discussion with SEV Chairman Dimitris Papalexopoulos.

Apart from the strictly fiscal characteristics of growth, which are determined by official statistics released by the Hellenic Statistical Agency and the European Commission, the premier said, “Growth must generate quality jobs, a growth leading to the convergence of Greek wages with European ones, a type of growth that will pay great emphasis to the idea of sustainability and of green transition.”

On top of all this, Mitsotakis pointed out, even greater emphasis should be paid on resilience against the challenges of climate change, while “growth cannot turn a blind eye on the colossal changes in the world of artificial intelligence, and the next phase of digital upscaling, which changes everything in how we understand our relationship with technology.”
