Greek presidential decree aims to slash red tape in government

A presidential decree being put forward by the government aims to reduce the number of instances in which more than one minister has to sign a decision by 150.

The legislation, prepared by the Administrative Reform Ministry, is the government’s latest effort to tackle bureaucracy, aiming to speed up the pace at which ministries can issue decisions.

“With this presidential decree we are making a small but effective step to combat bureaucracy, which is a burden for citizens and businesses,” said Administrative Reform Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis (photo).
