President of the Republic Karolos Papoulias on Wednesday received employment and social security minister Louka Katseli at the Presidential Mansion.

Katseli, upon arrival at the Presidential Mansion for the meeting, said that Greece is at a difficult conjuncture, and coordinated efforts are being made to save jobs and for the necessary structural changes to proceed.

She said that all the social partners need to aid the effort, adding that the dialogue is constant both with the domestic and international partners.

"We are on a good path. We will succeed," the minister added.

In a statement after the meeting, Katseli said that a new bill on the legislative framework for labor relations was in the final stage, with only a few details remaining.

She added that if the details were completed Wednesday, the bill would be unveiled at Thursday's Cabinet meeting, otherwise it would be made public next week.

Katseli said the discussion with the President was constructive, adding that she briefed him on the efforts being made by her ministry to preserve jobs, the programs of the manpower employment organisation OAED, programs to combat poverty, and cooperation with all the pertinent agencies with the aim of supporting workers and their families at this critical time.
