The Minister of Development and Investments, Mr. Adonis Georgiadis stated:
“I feel particularly happy that today, just two weeks after the promulgation of the new Development Law for the “Manufacturing – Supply Chain” Support scheme, we are signing the second “Tourism Investment Support” scheme, which is aimed at an industry of vital importance to development of our economy. It is another success of the Ministry of Development and Investments and especially of the Deputy Minister, Mr. Nikos Papathanasis. With the tool of the new Development Law we are creating a modern investment model that will make our country competitive in attracting new investments, contributing decisively in strengthening the economy and creating more and better jobs”.
The Deputy Minister of Development and Investments, Mr. Nikos Papathanasis said in this regard: “When the new Development Law was passed by the Parliament, we committed to activate the first aid regimes as soon as possible, in order to satisfy the increased interest of the business community. In just two weeks ago we announced two aid regimes, first the “Processing-Supply Chain” and today the “Strengthening of Tourism Investments” which comes to support a very important and powerful branch of the Greek economy, tourism. We continue our work unabated and very soon we will let’s move forward with the next aid regimes. We are changing the country’s production model and giving all the necessary resources to entrepreneurship to flourish and strongly strengthen employment in our country.”
