During the meeting, Mr. Mitarakis reiterated the need to maintain the reduced island VAT for all five Aegean islands that bear the brunt of the immigration issue, because on June 30 its six-month validity expires.

Mr. Mitarakis and Mr. Koutoulakis discussed at length the need to strengthen the vessels that carry out patrols on the island of Lesvos, while in his capacity as MP for Chios, the Minister noted the need to speed up the works, in the building of the Chios customs.

The new Secretary General of the Aegean and Island Policy Manolis Koutoulakis also had a meeting with the President of the Lesvos Chamber Vangelis Myrsinias and the Steering Committee of the Chamber during which all current issues of mutual interest related to island politics and island politics were discussed. Mr. Koutoulakis stressed the importance and value of the role of the General Secretariat of the Aegean and Island Policy and its consolidation in Mytilene as a center for decision-making regarding island policy.

In a statement, Mr. Koutoulakis underlined the following:

"Since July 2019, at the Ministry of Shipping and Island Policy, with a decision of the Minister of Shipping and Island Policy, Giannis Plakiotakis, we have redefined the role of the state in the exercise of an effective integrated maritime policy.

We created the bases of a different regional policy, with special financial tools, so that insularity is a vehicle for the development and preservation of the territorial cohesion of our country, with the result that Mr. Plakiotakis presents, for the first time, a coherent legislative proposal, which focuses the islander resident and the islander businessman.

It is our duty and responsibility to work effectively to justify the citizens' trust in the government, without losing a single day. The development course of our islands is a challenge, to which, with the help of the employees of the General Secretariat of the Aegean and Island Policy, we are ready to respond ".
