Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Friday reiterated his pledge to focus on creating well-paid jobs to lower unemployment instead of relying on government handouts.
“Creating many well-paid jobs is a government priority,” he told lawmakers, opening the debate in Parliament on labor issues.
“We believe in creating new wealth that everyone will have a share in. Temporary benefits are not the solution to the problems of social inequality.”
He also argued that a strong country relies on strong private businesses, but also that satisfied employees are a prerequisite for creating prosperous businesses.
“I have made it clear that we are reducing taxes, simplifying the licensing environment, facilitating businesses as far as it regards liquidity, and businesses in turn have an obligation to invest in our country and primarily take care of their employees. This Truth Agreement is strictly observed in the seven months that we are in government,” he added.
