Stournaras blasts ‘un­sat­is­fac­tory’ in­sti­tu­tions, ‘fortresses’ against ex­cel­lence

Kathimerini English - - Focus -

Greece Gov­er­nor Yan­nis Stournaras in­den­ti­fied the un­sat­is­fac­tory op­er­a­tion of in­sti­tu­tions as the main ob­sta­cle to the coun­try’s eco­nomic re­cov­ery. Speak­ing at an in­ter­view yes­ter­day he also stressed the sig­nif­i­cance of ed­u­ca­tion and the need to high­light ex­cel­lence and as­sess­ment, while re­fer­ring to ‘fortresses’ that want the coun­try to re­main stag­nant. ‘Our in­sti­tu­tions are lag­ging. Greeks per­form mir­a­cles abroad be­cause the in­sti­tu­tions there help them. There is of course ma­jor progress [in Greece] but there still ex­ist some fortresses against ex­cel­lence,’ Stournaras stated.
