National targets

The official news regarding Greece’s present fiscal state of affairs appears to be very good indeed and is paving the way for serious negotiations with the country’s creditors and partners regarding the sovereign debt issue.

All those – both within this country and beyond its borders – who doubted that Greece was capable of achieving its financial results, have been proven wrong.

The financial burden carried by taxpayers in this country has been enormous, especially by those who were asked to pay an unfair, disproportionate portion of the total taxes that have been imposed over the last few years.

Nevertheless, Greece is overcoming its problems and it is now time to engage in a serious discussion on how healthy and productive growth will finally come about.

It’s time to set a series of national goals in a number of crucial sectors and tear down the kind of obstacles that end up leading even the most persistent of investors to throw their hands up in despair.
