The government is promoting its political plan for the post-memorandum era, which is based on the social state and the economic growth under conditions of social justice. The priority on the government agenda is the regulation of labor relations, the first steps being the restoration of collective bargaining and the increase of the minimum wage.

In an interview with ANA-MPA, Deputy Prime Minister and Economy Minister Yannis Dragasakis stressed that the government’s goal is to improve the everyday life of citizens by means of a new development strategy. Mr. Dragasakis also repeated that the realization of this goal is not consistent with measures such as pension cuts.
