“The concern of this government, our meaning, will always be our fellow citizens who are most in need. As long as the economy is growing, this government will not hesitate to use this growth dividend to support our fellow citizens who are currently struggling. We are faced with an imported accuracy crisis, but we are doing everything we can to ease the impact on households”, said Kyriakos Mitsotakis.

If the first four-year bet was the lowest taxes, the second four-year bet will be the best wages

The Prime Minister focused on the economic initiatives undertaken by the government: “From this month, for the first time in 12 years, pensioners will see an increase in their pensions. The most up to 8%. Those who have a personal difference – it is an issue that concerns us – this personal difference will be reduced with each increase in pensions, but those who have a personal difference will see a benefit from the abolition of the solidarity levy. Another memorial tax, which is now abolished for everyone. Not just private employees, civil servants and pensioners. From February, the “Market Pass” will be implemented. We will give you the possibility to return up to 10% for the purchases you make in the supermarket. With income criteria that will cover, I believe, all and sundry, but also with an intervention of the state very important in order to effectively absorb the entire impact of inflation on the household basket. From April 1, we will have the new big increase in the minimum wage,” Mr. Mitsotakis emphasized, adding that “if the first four-year bet was lower taxes and you already know that we all pay lower taxes, the second four-year bet will be the best salaries for every Greek woman, for every Greek man, primarily for the young children who are now entering the labor market”.

I am happy today to be here and see a lively market, despite the difficulties that exist and see optimism and smiles. We have achieved a lot and will achieve even more in the second four-year period.

Very serious work has been done here in Korydallos. I recently had the opportunity to visit a training and skills center where I saw your fellow citizens, who are choosing today in a phase of their lives that may not be self-evident to do so, to become familiar with digital technology and computers and to take advantage of the great digital revolution that this government has put into practice. has made your life easier and everyone should be able to access these services”.

Regarding the project of relocating the Korydallos prisons, Kyriakos Mitsotakis stated that “I discussed with the Mayor the great development challenge for the Municipality of Korydallos, which is none other than the relocation of the Korydallos prisons. You remember that I had committed in my program statements that this project will be implemented. The truth is that it tired us, taught us, but I am now absolutely certain that we will implement, in the second four-year period, this commitment of ours. Space has been found, financial tools are available, the prisons will leave Korydallos and we will discuss together with the local community what we should do and how we should utilize this very important space which will be released for the benefit of the local community, for the benefit of the local economy”.
