The time has come to re-examine the policies that did not lead to the anticipated results, regional development and competiti-veness minister Michalis Chrysohoidis said in an interview in Real News newspaper, stressing that the government must fulfill the terms contained in the Memorandum but "from there on, we must not confuse our roles".
"We are not here to serve the Memorandum as a Gospel. We are here to change Greece," he added.

Describing IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn as "cynical”, Chrysohoidis said that the former could serve his political ambitions "without sounding cynical about the leaders and peoples of other countries".

On growth, Chrysohoidis predicted that "we will have positive indices" in early 2012.
