Government spokesperson Stelios Petsas on Monday cited statements by Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis regarding the government's first year in power, noting that "one year later Greece has a completely different, upgraded image in the world. Greece's name is no longer synonymous with crisis but cited as an example of successful management of a huge challenge, as is the pandemic. Today the citizens trust the state more. Greece's image abroad is not one of privation and third world concerns but of a country facing the future with confidence and looking the world in the eyes".
Continuing his reference to the prime minister's statements, he underlined that "despite the fact that we faced very difficult challenges - economic, geopolitical, in health - we achieved a great deal. Rarely has so much have been done in such a short space of time."
Petsas noted that from the first moment the government proceeded with the implementation of the reform plan it had promised, in some case moving even more quickly than it had promised.
