PM Tsipras Proposes Doubling the Juncker Package, Tackling Unemployment at PES

Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said on Thursday Europe needs a new progressive agenda that will focus on growth and lowering unemployment, following a summit of the Party of European Socialists (PES) in Paris, where he was invited as an observer.
“I think Europe is at a crossroads and it is necessary to put a progressive agenda on the table, an alternative agenda, and especially to focus on growth, and try to find a way to tackle unemployment. This is the most important issue for me,” Tsipras told journalists.
“We decided today to coordinate efforts and to cooperate in order to have a common position in Bratislava. I believe that Brexit was the alarm, Europe and European governments have to wake up because we’re going in the wrong direction, so it is necessary to put a growth agenda on the table to end austerity and unemployment. I believe today we put the basis in order to try to have more coordinated actions between the progressive forces and governments in Europe.”
