Growth has returned, reforms have been made, the primary surplus is high and there is a great need for investments, European Commission Vice President Jyrki Katainen said on Monday in an exclusive interview with the Athens Macedonian News Agency (ANA).

 

Katainen also expressed his satisfaction over the performance of the Juncker programme mainly as regards the support of small and medium sized enterprises that have no access to bank loans.

Moreover, the EU Commissioner for Jobs, Growth, Investment and Competitiveness said that the reforms implemented have improved the business climate in Greece and expressed optimism that confidence is being restored and investment interest is being increased.

Asked if he is optimistic that Greece is turning a page, he said: I am glad that things in Greece are much more optimistic. And I have confidence in the country from now on.

The only risk is the non-implementation of the reforms. But I want to believe that since the government has already taken the decisions and the Parliament has voted them, despite being politically difficult, there is no reason not to apply them. Now we are entering a new, more positive period with stability and confidence returning to the country. And this is very positive.

Growth has returned, reforms have been made, the primary surplus is high and there is a great need for investments in the country, which can be done by the private sector as soon as confidence returns. I am quite optimistic about this.
