Regional Development and Comppetitiveness Minister Mihalis Chryssohoidis, speaking at a press conference following Thursday's cabinet meeting, presented the government's strategy on rewarming the economy, the restoration of healthy competition and the decrease in prices to levels that are fair for consumers and which correspond to the state of the economy.

Replying to questions by the press on the increase of VAT in food with the transfer of products, Chrykssohoidis said that one must not be hasty since the processing of the measures by the relevant Economy ministry has not yet been completed.

The ministry's aim is the implementation of an integrated strategy that will "return incomes to consumers who lost due to unfair prices that were applied in our market."
