The re­cently re-elected head of the Amer­i­can-Hel­lenic Cham­ber of Com­merce, Si­mos Anas­ta­sopou­los, has is­sued a fresh call on the gov­ern­ment to im­ple­ment the re­forms it agreed with its cred­i­tors and wrap up the next bailout re­view rapidly. “Be­sides the re­ces­sion­ary reper­cus­sions of the fis­cal mea­sures, we will also have to op­er­ate in a new Euro­pean en­vi­ron­ment that will nei­ther fa­vor the restora­tion of liquidity nor tol­er­ate pro­longed ne­go­ti­a­tions for clos­ing the sec­ond re­view,” said Anas­ta­sopou­los, who re­turned to the chair of the cham­ber last Thurs­day. “It is there­fore im­per­a­tive that the gov­ern­ment is fo­cused on the re­forms that will im­prove the com­pet­i­tive­ness of our econ­omy, open up the prod­ucts and ser­vices mar­ket, bal­ance out the re­ces­sion­ary mea­sures and sig­nal the re­turn of Greece to nor­mal­ity and to in­vestors’ radars,” stated Anas­ta­sopou­los.
