"Yesterday the food distributors suddenly became visible for Mr. Tsipras, today it was the turn of the small and medium enterprises. In each of his "discoveries" we will remind him of reality. But mainly that in politics it is the projects that count, not the announcements. ”

"Unfortunately for Mr. Tsipras, we all live under the same sky, but we do not all have the same horizon", says the government spokesman, Giannis Oikonomou, responding to the statements of the leader of the official opposition during his meeting with the presidents of GESEVEE and of KEEE.

Specifically, in a statement, Mr. Economou points out:

"Mr. Tsipras, while he was prime minister, consciously crushed small and medium-sized enterprises, with over-taxation and suffocating insurance contributions. It did not provide any incentive to improve their competitiveness through partnerships and mergers. Even the Development Bank did not give loans, because its articles of association forbade it. These can not be forgotten and certainly not the people of small and medium business.

In the last two years, the New Democracy government has reduced taxes and contributions for both employees and small and medium-sized businesses. For this even today they can pay contributions from 220 euros per month. It provided 8,3 billion in aid exclusively to small and medium-sized enterprises during the pandemic (5,3 billion in grants and 3 billion in 60-installment repayments and extremely low interest rates).

We are also giving strong incentives to small and medium-sized enterprises to join the Recovery Fund and benefit from programs worth 1,5 billion, with direct support for energy saving programs, digital modernization, tourism and agricultural investments and much more. Today we have 40000 companies more than those that existed before the pandemic, while the balance of foundations - padlocks in Athens for 2021 is 4316 new businesses compared to 700 that closed. This reality is a result of our government's policies.

Yesterday the food distributors suddenly became visible for Mr. Tsipras, today it was the turn of the small and medium enterprises. In each of his "discoveries" we will remind him of reality. But mainly that in politics the projects count, not the announcements. "Unfortunately for Mr. Tsipras, we all live under the same sky, but we do not all have the same horizon."
