Kyriakos Mitsotakis

Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, in his Sunday review of the week posted on social media, referred to the farmers' mobilisations.

He said that on Tuesday, he would meet with the farmers' representatives and, of course, on the condition that the roads would be open.

In any case, it is a priority to support the competition in the primary sector and the farmers' income, and that's why we will do whatever possible to reduce the cost factors in agriculture and livestock production.

Referring to the Education Ministry's bill on strengthening public universities and establishing the framework for branches of foreign non-profit universities in Greece which has been posted for public consultation on Thursday, he said it was and remains the government's priority with emphasis on the public universities.

Regarding the foundation of the non-public, non-profitable foreign universities departments in Greece, the requirements for their foundation will be the highest and stricter in Europe.

He said that significant progress has been recorded both in unemployment and in the increase of income in the private sector adding that the government wants to create 200,000 new job positions in the next three years.

On the housing policy, Mitsotakis said that "it is only one of the pillars of our social policy. Our aim is the support of the financially vulnerable and especially of the young that are staying with their parents until their 30s."

"The problem is complex and serious, particularly in areas with pressure due to the tourism growth. I announced in parliament on Friday that our intention is to increase the threshold for purchasing real estate via the Golden Visa, possibly to 800,000 euros, and the measures will concern all the areas under pressure," he concluded.
