Papandreou Will Take All & Any Measures to Improve Greece



The alert is not over and the effort for the country’s salvation is continuing, stated Prime Minister George Papandreou on Thursday.  He added that: “2011 will be the critical second half of the game…the painful measures have been taken in the first year”.
Addressing his ruling PASOK party’s parliamentary group, Papandreou said that even if Eurostat revises upwards the Greek fiscal deficit and debt: “we will not alter our targets and it will not be necessary to take additional measures”.
The European Commission is slated to finalise the exact level of fiscal deficit and public debt of all EU member states for the period 2006-2009 within the month.  This is according to an Wednesday announcement  by a spokesman for EU Economic and Monetary Affairs Commissioner Olli Rehn.
“We have a patriotic duty for the country to move forward. We are doing away with established mentalities. Through painful measures, we are making a huge, collective effort, regardless of any political cost, to change Greece,” the Prime Minister stressed.
