Αlternate Finance Minister Theodoros Skylakakis, in charge of the Recovery Fund, on Wednesday morning visited the Representative Office of the European Commission in Athens.
During the visit he handed over to the Acting Head of the Representation, George Moschovis, a copy of the National Recovery and Resilience Plan "Greece 2.0", which was officially sent and posted on the European Union system on Tuesday.
Skylakakis made the following statement:
"Our National Recovery and Resilience Plan 'Greece 2.0' was submitted to the European Commission last night.
"The Plan includes 106 investment programmes and 67 reforms that are accurately described and detailed in 4,104 pages.
"Greece, which thanks to the negotiation made by Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, has gained the most resources per capita in Europe from the Recovery Fund and is the second country to submit its final plan.
"I would like to thank all those who have worked so far in the joint effort for the feverish and difficult work it took to get here.
"The first step was taken.
"Now the even more difficult task of absorbing the huge resources of the Fund follows, which will allow the country to realise not only a dynamic recovery, but to enter a permanent long-term course of development and change of its productive model.
"Our plan has the maturity that allows us to start the projects and investments of the Fund as early as tomorrow, with our own resources, until the money of the Fund arrives, after the approval of our plan by the middle of the summer.
"The challenge is huge, but the opportunity for Greece is unique."
