The Greek people will acknowledge the work of the government that brought Greece to light and will not forgive those responsible for the economic and social decline they caused, Tourism Minister Elena Kountoura said in an interview with the Athens-Macedonian News Agency (ANA) released on Monday.
“Now that Greece has turned a page, our goal is to enhance its role in decisions about the future of Europe,” Kountoura said adding that “we have to answer with a new political proposal for a Europe that will not divide but unite.”
On her candidacy in the European elections, she told the Athens-Macedonian News Agency that she responded to Alexis Tsipras’ call “to build a great progressive alliance that claims a strong and proud Greece in a deeply democratic and human Europe.”
Moreover, Kountoura stated: “I set the strategic goal to make Greece a top global destination for tourism 365 days a year. This great tourist development with growth over 35 percent in the last four years, has catalytically contributed to our government’s national effort to take the country out of the memoranda, lead it to growth, attract a large number of investments, more than 400 investment projects, while affecting positively all productive sectors.”
Asked by the Athens-Macedonian News Agency about the relations with North Macedonia, she underlined that the Prespes Agreement not only solved problems in our north borders, but it is also beneficial for Greece.
Regarding the Novartis case, she proposed to leave Justice continue its research.
