"Greece is in the right direction," said OECD Secretary General Angel Gurria on Tuesday, during a press briefing at the end of the first of two days of the OECD's 4th Ministerial Meeting of the Regional Development Policy Committee (RDPC) in Athens, alongside Deputy Prime Minister and Economy and Development Minister Yiannis Dragasakis.
Participants at the meeting include EU's ommissioner for regional policy Corina Cre?u, Spain's deputy minister for territorial policy Ignacio Sanchez Amor and Turkey’s deputy industry and technology minister Cetin Ali Donmez.
Greece is an exemplary case "of tremendous work and sacrifices" and "it went through dramatic moments trying to reduce its nominal debt, thus slowly creating the prerequisites for servicing its debt over the next 15 years," added Gurria, who went on to say that "Greece has been rowing upstream, and that requires all the more effort."
