Prime Minister George Papandreou on Monday underlined the government's volition to proceed with the EU-ECB-IMF "troika" mandated opening of so-called "closed professions", speaking during a meeting with relevant ministers at the Maximos Mansion government house.

“Proceed immediately and through dialogue with the opening of the closed professions. This reform will make services more affordable, will reduce red tape and reinforce the competitiveness of the economy,” Papandreou was quoted as saying.

Within the next two weeks - based on the government’s timetable - competent ministers will have to launch a dialogue with various professional sectors so that a ministry of finance-sponsored draft law for the opening of closed professions is ready to be tabled in Parliament by the end of the month.
