Greek PM on EU tour in bid to soften fiscal targets

AFP, Athens

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis will begin a tour of EU capitals this week, officials said yesterday, in a bid to persuade the country’s creditors to alleviate tough fiscal targets.

Mitsotakis will begin his meetings with a trip to Paris on Thursday to see President Emmanuel Macron, a government source said.

He will then see German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin on August 29 and Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte on September 2.

New Greek finance minister Christos Staikouras told the Financial Times this weekend that the government would swiftly implement a programme of tax cuts and privatisations to promote growth, reassure investors and “move the economy to an upward virtuous spiral”.

Mitsotakis, elected last month on a ticket of boosting growth, hopes to win agreement to cut the annual target of 3.5 per cent of primary budget surplus which Greece’s previous leftist government had pledged to maintain to 2022.

Greece exited its final bailout last year.
