Un­de­clared war

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Greece is a coun­try which could at­tract ma­jor in­vest­ment from abroad. Could be­ing the op­er­a­tive word. The cost of la­bor has dropped con­sid­er­ably over the last few years, while Greece con­tin­ues to boast ex­cel­lent hu­man resources. How­ever, at the same time, the ex­is­tence of an end­less list of hur­dles leads many of those con­tem­plat­ing mak­ing some kind of in­vest­ment in the coun­try to even­tu­ally lose faith. The cur­rent SYRIZA-In­de­pen­dent Greeks coali­tion gov­ern­ment has placed a num­ber of sworn en­e­mies of en­trepreneur­ship in key po­si­tions which have every­thing to do with at­tract­ing in­vest­ment to Greece. All of th­ese in­di­vid­u­als, each for their own par­tic­u­lar rea­sons, are tak­ing part in an un­de­clared war on in­vest­ment and pri­va­ti­za­tions. Why th­ese peo­ple find them­selves in such piv­otal roles, at a time when even Prime Min­is­ter Alexis Tsipras him­self be­lieves th­ese po­si­tions to be a ma­jor pri­or­ity, is noth­ing short of a mys­tery.
