“Our goal is not only to lead the country out of crisis, but also to restore the credibility of government policy to create conditions for a radical transformation of the economy, said Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, speaking in Parliament on the draft budget discussion. We believes that can lay the groundwork for big changes that are needed now more than ever in today’s Europe, which is undergoing a period of crisis and destabilization”.
