The National Confederation of Hellenic Commerce (ESEE) and the Hellenic Confederation of Professionals Craftsmen and Merchants (GSEVEE) on Wednesday presented a joint resolution on the Medium-Term Fiscal Strategy, which was set to be tabled in Parliament the same day.
GSEVEE-ESEE representatives outlined the problems faced by local markets and the manufacturing sector, outlining positions they said will help the country overcome the punishing economic crisis.  

In their joint resolution they suggested, amongst others, a thorough restructuring of sectors of the Greek economy with the biggest comparative advantages; significant incentives for enterprises; a reduction in VAT rates; greater state investments; tougher measures against the so-called “underground market”; an additional three-year guarantee for personal and business bank accounts as well as measures to boost the real economy.
