The leader of New Democracy (ND) Kyriakos Mitsotakis met with the European People’s Party at the European Union HQ in Brussels. During the meeting he laid out his alternative program of reforms for Greece once the bailout program ends, which is due to happen in August 2018.
Organised by European Migration Commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos, the meeting was also attended by the EU’s Jobs and Growth Commissioner Jyrki Katainen and Digital Economy and Society Commissioner Guenther Oettinger.
A spokesman for ND told reporters that the program detailed the creation of new jobs, reforming the public sector, bringing in further foreign investment, improving the education sector and improving agricultural production.
ND has consistently been ahead of SYRIZA in polls over recent months.
