“I am committed to fewer taxes, many investments, for good and new jobs, and growth which will bring better salaries and higher pensions in an efficient state.” Kyriakos Mitsotakis
Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis winds up his foreign visits, returning to Athens from The Hague. Rumors have it that more tax cuts are in the offing for Greek tourism. As the PM shifts his attention to preparing for his much-awaited appearance at the Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF) on Saturday, stakeholders hold their breath.
There’s speculation that the content of the premier’s speech in Thessaloniki will further elaborate on promised tax cuts and possibly herald some new ones, most likely benefitting the Greece tourism sector. The undercurrent of this news is that Mitsotakis has been on a road trip that began from Paris and led to Berlin, where Greece prime minister intends to alter his county’s image in record time.
Prime Minister Mitsotakis is also expected to provide further details about his government’s plans to draw foreign investments and create much-needed jobs. A bill aimed at boosting growth by removing the barriers to investment is to be put up for public discussion this week. Mitsotakis will be in New York on September 24-27, when he have contacts with foreign leaders on the sidelines of the annual UN meeting.
In a short stopover visit to Thessaloniki last Thursday, after talks with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin, Mitsotakis told local business groups that boosting growth, including in the Greek tourism sector, is his “absolute priority.”
