Mov­ing for­ward

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Most of the re­gion that sur­rounds Greece has be­come ex­tremely volatile and dan­ger­ous, yet this coun­try re­mains an an­chor of sta­bil­ity as waves of un­rest crash around it. Greece’s po­si­tion means that it has a lot to gain from an abun­dance of op­por­tu­ni­ties for it to ad­vance its na­tional in­ter­ests, as long as it plays its cards right. A cru­cial ex­am­ple of such op­por­tu­ni­ties is the tourism in­dus­try, and in this area Greece could at­tract an even greater share of the mar­ket. It could also be­come a pe­riph­eral hub in other im­por­tant eco­nomic sec­tors. But the fact is that any progress hinges on Greece be­ing able to main­tain a rea­son­able level of po­lit­i­cal sta­bil­ity with­out so­cial up­heaval on the do­mes­tic front. The in­or­di­nate amount of pres­sure that is be­ing put on the coun­try by ex­ter­nal forces, how­ever, is do­ing noth­ing to help.
