There is high investment activity and specific actions have already been made in this direction, the secretary general for International Economic Relations of the Foreign Ministry Giorgos Tsipras said on Friday in an interview with the Athens Macedonian News Agency’s radio station Praktoreio 104.9 FM.
“It’s a dynamic that we did not have 6-7 years ago,” he explained adding that “it will be later reflected on the society.”
He underlined however, that unemployment rate has already been significantly reduced.
Tsipras noted that in the previous years Greece was solely looking to the West, but now the interest has also turned to the East.
“The country that shows the main interest for investments in Greece is China and this will become even more apparent in the next period. However, EU member states and the U.S. still play an important role,” he stressed.
