Wednesday, 30 November 2016
Draft legislation that simplifies the procedures for starting a new business was passed in the Greek Parliament on Tuesday, with Economy and Development Minister Dimitris Papadimitriou pledging to deliver "enterprise in conditions of social justice".
"The government will move decisively on investment issues, with transparency and broader social consensus to restore enterprise in the country in conditions of social justice, without exclusion or discrimination," he said.
The bill was passed with broad backing, with Papadimitriou calling on the political parties to offer the "greatest possible consensus" since the draft bill would help attract investment and improve the functioning of the market.
