Education Minister Anna Diamantopoulou participated in a debate here on the economic crisis and Europe's future.
The in-camera  meeting was organised by the British Council and the British Embassy, in collaboration with the Italian Embassy in London, the University of Siena and St Antony’s College Oxford within the framework of the nineteenth "Conference of Pontignano" chaired jointly by former Italian Prime Minister Giuliano Amato and Chris Patten (rector of Oxford University, and former European commissioner).
Diamantopoulou told AMNA that she presented specific data regarding Greece's great reforms effort and underlined that these reforms cannot yield complete results in eighteen months, given that they concern a whole generation.
Moreover, the Greek minister noted that "it is of Europe's interest and not only of Greece, to remain in the eurozone."
