The periphery in Greece is the place where a new growth model for the country can be created, Agricultural Development and Foods minister Costas Skandalidis said on Saturday, during an event in Hania, Crete, on the Kallikratis public administration reform plan.

The periphery in Greece is the place where a new growth model for the country can be created, Agricultural Development and Foods minister Costas Skandalidis said on Saturday, during an event in Hania, Crete, on the Kallikratis public administration reform plan.

Skandalidis said it is necessary to re-start growth and enhance democracy.

"We will change direction. If we don't, Greece cannot live as it is today. And it is a shape that we had to hit rock bottom to change course," he said.

On the political system, he said that the political authority was exclusively responsible for the building of the state and its economic and growth model, noting that the political authority is not only the central authority but also the local authorities and everything that has to do with the organisation of society.

If authority does not carry over into society, the existing growth model cannot be changed, the minister added.
