Mitsotakis stated that he and Greece’s Development Minister, Kostas Skrekas would announce a series of concrete steps today to combat profiteering, aiming to reduce the effect of inflation.

“This is a new start for the government but the goal remains the same: significant reforms aimed squarely at improving day-to-day life for every Greek woman and man,” Mitsotakis said in his opening statement.

Mitsotakis has declared that new zoning maps will also be created for 800 towns around the nation using resources from the Recovery Fund.
