New Democ­racy leader Kyr­i­akos Mit­so­takis com­pleted a three­day trip to Eng­land and Ger­many yes­ter­day by hold­ing talks with Euro­pean Cen­tral Bank Pres­i­dent Mario Draghi in Frank­furt.

Mit­so­takis, who also met with in­vestors in Lon­don ear­lier in the week, used the op­por­tu­nity to set out his ideas for a plan that could re­turn Greece to growth.

“I ex­plained that a nec­es­sary con­di­tion for the Greek econ­omy to re­cover is the im­ple­men­ta­tion of struc­tural re­forms that will im­prove Greece’s com­pet­i­tive­ness and at­tract in­vest­ments,” he said af­ter the meet­ing.

Sources said Mit­so­takis ex­pressed con­cern that while the SYRIZA-led coali­tion is adopt­ing mea­sures, it is also rolling back some re­forms.

“The ECB ac­knowl­edged that dur­ing the last year there has been vis­i­ble progress in the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the third eco­nomic ad­just­ment pro­gram for Greece,” the Euro­pean Cen­tral Bank said in a state­ment.
