The decision of the government to continue providing support for the duration of the crisis in the global energy market was stressed by Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, during his visit to a poultry farm of vertical production, which was the first stop of his visit to Megara today.

“As long as this unrest lasts, there will be a not insignificant support from the state to help you in your costing,” said the Prime Minister. “As you know, from the beginning of January there will be a state subsidy for energy for all production units, for all companies, which I believe will cover a significant part, up to 50% of the energy increase,” he said.

“There will definitely be a burden, because this is to be expected given the huge changes we have had in gas prices. I hope that this big upheaval will last the first months of the year and then we will be able to return to a relative normalcy,” he added. Kyriakos Mitsotakis.

He stressed that the government strongly supports the creation of infrastructure for renewable energy sources, which will reduce dependence on imported energy and production costs.

“There is now a legal framework that allows you to do this and I think it is an investment that in the medium to long term will be able to provide you with cheap energy, without being dependent on imported energy, but which – as you can see – can have many “negative fluctuations,” the Prime Minister added.

The Secretary General for Agricultural Policy and International Relations, Konstantinos Baginetas, referred to the new institutional framework for organic farming, animal husbandry and poultry farming. “Poultry and pig farming are among these farms that are very intensive, so a new institutional framework is being promoted that promotes animal welfare, as you mentioned organic farming and free range.” “There are programs, there are grants that will help you in this transition,” he added.

The Prime Minister was accompanied by the Deputy Minister of Justice and MP of West Attica of the New Democracy George Kotsiras, the Deputy Minister of Digital Government in charge of Telecommunications and the Land Registry Theodoros Libanios, the Secretary General of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Konstantinos ND, Thanasis Bouras and Evangelos Liakos and the Mayor of Megara, Grigoris Stamoulis.
