|Greece is Changing. Give Greece a Chance campaign|
|MONEY TALK / MARKETS / Tuesday, 01 May 2012 10:19|
Greece has committed to the toughest austerity program in modern history. Hefty tax hikes, pension and wage cuts have reduced the primary budget deficit from € 24,7 billion to € 5,2 billion in just two years… but with a dramatic impact on the life of every Greek.
A new set of measures was recently voted in by the Greek Parliament. With a focus on structural reform, we have a chance to create a new Greece. A modern, productive and creative Greece with a sustainable future in Europe.
Further hardship is inevitable. Unemployment has already reached 21%. This is a high price to pay and it should not go in vain.
We are entering the fifth year of recession.
We are hardworking, taxpaying citizens unfairly labeled with stereotypes so easily handed out to Greeks today.
All we are saying is give Greece a chance.
