Opposition Communist Party of Greece (KKE) general secretary Aleka Papariga on Friday stressed that the future of the Hellenic Aerospace Industry S.A. (HAI) is uncertain despite what she called its "great potential".
Speaking before company employees, she underlined that they lose wages and rights despite the company’s potential while collaboration with contractors using cheap labour is on the rise.
Papariga underlined that such companies and entire sectors should become the property of society and be put to the service of an economic growth that will safeguard the interests of the people. 
Her address came a day the state-run Hellenic Defence Systems (EAS) S.A. announced that it had posted staggering net losses of 142.3 million euros in 2010, compared with a net loss of 168.4 million euros.
