Samaras made clear that unemployment should not be treated with wishful thinking and stated his determination for government action as Greece is entering a recovery period.
“For the first time after 24 quarters, the GDP is seen rising, while 770,000 new jobs are expected to be added by 2020,” Samaras stressed.
The Prime Minister called on the members of the governing council of employment to heed recommendations in the next meeting to be held in October, and to come up with a single proposal.
On his part, Labor Minister Yiannis Vroutsis referred to the creation of a special business register for consistent businesses. These businesses will have benefits such as less audits and possibly reduced contributions.
