Development, Competitiveness and Shipping Minister Mihalis Chryssohoidis, speaking in an interview with "Spiegel Online", stressed the need for the mechanisms that will support the growth of the Greek economy to be strengthened.
Chryssohoidis said that negotiations are taking place with the European Commission for the boosting of investments so as to improve the provision of structural aid for the small and medium-size enterprises.
"We are also discussing with the German government, how to establish a Greek investments bank on the model of the German 'KfW'," the minister said. This foundation can finance major projects for example in the energy sector or in infrastructures. "More detailed announcements can be made in a few weeks," Chryssohoidis added.
