ND leader Mitsotakis stresses need for different policy mix to exit crisis

Main opposition New Democracy leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis stressed the need for a different policy mix to get the country out of the crisis.

Mitsotakis, who was speaking at a conference organised by Naftemporiki newspaper, accused the government that it sinks the Greek economy into recession if it sticks on the same policy.
He explained that the conclusion of the negotiation will not bring growth as the government's policy mix is not recessionary. "It puts emphasis on higher taxes and reduced expenses," he said adding that public expenditure can be reduced by easing tax rates.
"We have proposed measures to reduce expenditure assuming the political cost. The government's policy will hit consumption and enterprises. These measures will boost tax evasion. This is already happening," he stated.
