The issue of the energy crisis and the subsequent inflationary pressures were at the center of today's meeting between the Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and the President of the Hellenic Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulou, as part of the regular monthly updates.

During his reception by Mrs. Sakellaropoulou, the Greek Prime Minister assured that the Government will support, within the framework of the budget, the most vulnerable citizens against the wave of precision.

“As the war in Ukraine unfortunately continues unabated and of course the pressures on the global economy from inflationary trends show no signs of abating at present. That is why I want to assure you once again that within the framework of our fiscal possibilities we will do everything in our power to support Greek society, primarily our weakest fellow citizens, with a network of measures and interventions, so that to mitigate - because unfortunately no government is able to fully neutralize - the effects of this unprecedented wave of imported precision," he noted.

At the same time, Mr. Mitsotakis referred to Greece's geostrategic role as a natural gas gateway, in the effort to wean itself off Russian natural gas.

For her part, the President of the Hellenic Republic noted that the war in Ukraine is causing geopolitical instability and impacts, such as the energy, refugee and food crisis, which affect all citizens and especially the most vulnerable.

"The European Union is trying to deal with the energy crisis in a coordinated way with an emergency plan, but […] each country ultimately has the final responsibility for drawing up its own policy," he noted.

"Difficult months await us and the wish of all of us is that this crisis will be dealt with as soon as possible", pointed out Mrs. Sakellaropoulou, expressing the hope that the tourist season will give a boost to the economy.
