Resurrection Of Greece's Economy Must Now Become a Resurrection of Greeks' Daily Lives
Tuesday, 30 April 2019
The resurrection and emerging recovery of Greece's economy must now also become translated into a "resurrection" of the daily lives of Greek men and women, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said on Greek Easter Sunday, during his visit to the Kiramadio naval base at Cavo Sidero, a cape on the easternmost part of the island of Crete.
The prime minister spent Easter at the naval base, accompanied by National Defence Minister Evangelos Apostolakis and Hellenic National Defence General Staff (HNDGS) chief General Christos Christodoulou and Hellenic Navy General Staff chief Vice Admiral Nikolaos Tsounis HN.
Extending his best wishes for the Easter holiday to all Greeks, he noted that the Resurrection celebrated at Easter symbolised the victory of life, light, justice and love and expressed his confidence about the country's future:
"We can survey this Easter with more optimism about the future since, after a difficult time, we find ourselves in a clearing of hope. All these years, through their sacrifices, the Greek people made possible the resurrection and recovery of the Greek economy. At the same time, the country has regained its prestige in both the Southeastern Mediterranean and in the Balkans, as well as its strength in Europe. All these things give us strength and optimism.
