Time for Troika to Go Home, Swoboda Says
Friday, 24 January 2014
It’s time for troika to go home and for Greece take up the responsibility of reforms that need to be done in the country,” Hannes Swoboda, head of the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats in the European Parliament said, as quoted by the Athens News Agency-Macedonian Press Agency.
“Unnecessary sacrifices have been made, but we cannot turn the clock backwards. We can stop now and turn to growth and the creation of investment and jobs,” Swoboda commented.
Noting Greece’s progress over the past years, Swoboda said it was time for more targeted measures, with a focus on public administration. In his view, taxes on medium and small-sized companies should be lowered and priority importance attached to helping the business invest and create jobs.
