Economy Minister Giorgos Stathakis pledged Wednesday that the government would not focus as much as previous administrations on large public works projects, preferring instead small and medium-sized projects that are more in tune with the needs of local residents.

"We are in a transitionary phase, as a cycle during which some people associated the country’s growth with large public works has come to a close," said Stathakis following a visit by Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras to the Infrastructure, Transport and Networks Ministry.
