Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis met on Thrursday with the Executive Director of the European Stability Mechanism (ESM), Pierre Gramegna.

During the meeting, special reference was made to the high growth rates, resilience and upward dynamics of the Greek economy, despite successive external challenges, which is reflected in the exit from the regime of enhanced supervision in August 2022.

Issues of wider European interest were also discussed such as the energy crisis and the need for a strong European response to climate change as well as the challenges of the future.

The Head of the Economic Office of the Prime Minister, Alexis Patelis, also participated in the meeting.

The meeting with Staikouras

Earlier Mr. Pierre Gramegna had a meeting with the Minister of Finance. Christos Staikouras, in his statements after the meeting, referred to the six priorities of the Greek economy – given that the international geopolitical waters are still stormy, inflation is decreasing but remains high and persistent and monetary policy is becoming more and more restrictive.

For his part, the head of the ESM focused on the progress of the Greek economy, pointing out, however, the need for the country to remain vigilant. “I want to congratulate the Greek government, the Greek people, and especially you, Christos, for the impressive results of your economy”, he emphasized in his statement after the meeting with the finance minister.

He added that “but we must remain vigilant. Maintaining the strong gains of the past, keeping fiscal policy on a sustainable path, and maintaining the course of reforms will help Greece’s economy prosper. Doing all this is also necessary to maintain investor confidence in the market.”
