"Greece supported, from the first moment, the initiative of the Portuguese Presidency to put a very high priority on the social agenda of Europe. But in order for the provisions of the social pillar to be applied, Europe as a whole must return to a rapid pace of recovery.
And for this and it is very important to use as soon as possible the new financial tools that we now have at our disposal. I am referring specifically to the National Recovery and Resilience Plan "Greece 2.0", which I estimate will be approved by the European authorities by the end of June.
But the recovery that will follow the pandemic adventure must be a recovery with different characteristics: more and better jobs, fewer inequalities, better quality of work, better working conditions. A recovery that will make the fight against discrimination a top priority.
And in this effort to build a new social Europe, which will not leave any European behind, Greece will be a protagonist both nationally and at European level. "
