West Macedonia growth plan concerns works of 4 bln euros

Visiting the town of Ptolemaida on Monday, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and the ministers involved presented the government’s vision for growth in Western Macedonia, which envisages works amounting to 4 billion euros.

The works will change the characteristics of the area and will set many and new public and private investments in motion, Mitsotakis underlined during the visit.

Addressing the citizens of Ptolemaida, Mitsotakis referred to the government’s work, stressing: “We kept our key pledges. We raised wages, we created new jobs, we made Greece safer and geopolitically stronger and, most importantly, we supported society when there were difficulties.”

The premier referred to his visit on Tuesday to the coal-fired power plant Ptolemaida 5, saying: “Tomorrow I will have the opportunity to attend the inauguration of the last big coal-burning unit at Ptolemaida 5, because lignite will be a strategic reserve for Greece. At the same time, the green transition, which we all know must inevitably become action, will be turned into action in an equitable way. In a way that is just and guarantees that Western Macedonia will have the lion’s share in terms of the incentives which will allow you to look to the future with optimism.”
