Fair economic growth remains the government’s priority, says digital policy minister

The government’s aim is still to achieve fair economic growth and the parties of the center and center-left can contribute to this end, Digital Policy, Telecommunications and Information Minister Nikos Pappas said in an interview with newspaper «Ethnos», published on Sunday.
The minister said that to complete the recovery domestically, a «loud and significant message» should be sent that Greece is ending with corruption, that it has mechanism to supervise the sound management of its public finances, which provide significant fiscal room, and that it solves its problems with its neighbours.
Pappas accused the main opposition leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis and his party of undermining the country’s prospects by insisting that Greece secures a precautionary credit line. «They will not have their way. For the first time a program is being completed without black holes and new demands; for the first time the economy is truly recovering,» he said.
He then criticized Bank of Greece Governor Yannis Stournaras for expressing the same view, saying he is speaking «with the capacity of [former PM Antonis] Samaras’ failed finance minister, who insists that his bankrupt options should be implemented again,» and called on the central banker to «remain within his mandate.»
