ATHENS –  The government is doing whatever it can to reduce Greece’s debt when others are trying to force the country into mandatory lending, Prime Minister Antonis Samaras said in an article.

“We are doing everything we can to reduce the debt when others are doing everything they can to return the country to forced lending,” Samaras said in his article titled The Next Day: A Reform Jump Into Tomorrow, published in the Sunday edition of Kathimerini daily.

After citing the steps that have been taken so far to reduce debt, the Greek premier said the country is claiming additional economic relief, adding that “a country that doesn’t have a sustainable debt cannot borrow from the markets.”

He also said political and economic stability are the main aim in order to continue with reforms and the final exit from the economic crisis.

Samaras also mentioned four pillars which form the most important elements of the government’s plan: faster judicial procedures; contributory revenues for local government, starting with the unified property tax ENFIA; improvement of the public education system and simplification and rationalization of the tax system with a gradual reduction of taxes.

The Prime Minister also reiterated his view that to achieve political stability, the new President of the Republic would have to be elected by the current Parliament and the constitutional review would have to continue undisturbed.
