PM:The measures announced comply with the overall strategy to create wealth and distribute it fairly

Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, in a press conference at the Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF), said on Sunday that the measures for the protection of public health will continue to apply and that we will continue to use masks for a long time.

On the vaccination strategy, he said that it is not the government's intention to extend the mandatory vaccination in other sectors. "At the moment it is not in my intentions, however I cannot rule it out," he said.

Regarding the course of the economy, he said that he feels safe with the forecast for 5.9 percent growth in 2021. "This is the minimum level of growth that we can achieve in 2021," he underlined.

On the measures he announced on Saturday, he said that they comply with the government's overall strategy to create wealth and distribute it fairly.
