Hellenic Federation of Enterprises
Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras took a swipe at the Hellenic Federation of Enterprises (SEV) Monday for "trying to intervene in the public debate" about the measures in 2019-20 that Greece must implement, including pension cuts.
Speaking at a meeting of northern Greek industrialists, he said it was "unclear which forces [SEV] actually represents."
The prospects of social prosperity remain limited as the country is on a low growth course due to insufficient investments, the Hellenic Federation of Enterprises (SEV) warns in its weekly bulletin. It also says the government should not go back on its austerity pledges, although households had to dig deep into their savings again last year.
In the next five years Greece could become a field of growth for 2,100 startups, which could lead to the creation of 20,000 new jobs and reverse brain drain, according to the Hellenic Federation of Enterprises (SEV), provided that the country implements specific reform policies and introduces incentives for the development of ecosystems for new enterprises.
Addressing a general meeting of the Hellenic Federation of Enterprises (SEV) on Tuesday, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras associated the negotiations on the measures to ease Greece's debt with the outcome of the Italian political crisis, and domestic political stability with a smooth exit from the bailout program.
