Re­lease Greece’s po­ten­tial

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Greece re­mains a non-com­pet­i­tive coun­try in an ex­tremely tough global en­vi­ron­ment and its low rank­ing has again been con­firmed in lists pub­lished by in­ter­na­tional or­ga­ni­za­tions. But its poor per­for­mance can­not be ex­plained by a lack of hu­man re­sources or com­par­a­tive ad­van­tages be­cause it is ex­tremely rich in both. The sim­ple truth is that Greece has been grad­u­ally squeezed into a strait­jacket that pre­vents the coun­try from ad­vanc­ing. In­ad­e­quate politi­cians, a state that is on the brink of col­lapse, con­fus­ing and con­vo­luted leg­is­la­tion, a jus­tice sys­tem that is strug­gling to do its job and of course the moun­tain of red tape have all con­trib­uted to this sense of con­straint. And we are still look­ing for the leader and the team that will face the prob­lem and take all the steps nec­es­sary to re­lease Greece’s siz­able po­ten­tial.
