Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis delivered his weekly government update today, touching on various topics.

Underlining the swift evolution in global education and the knowledge economy, Mitsotakis stressed Greece’s imperative to adapt and advance. He highlighted, “A significant – perhaps even historic – stride in this direction is the legislation passed by Parliament on Friday, marking the conclusion of an outdated practice surpassed by the realities of modern life.”

Furthermore, he expressed disappointment at political factions ignoring citizens’ demands for progress, pledging the government’s commitment to initiatives that enhance the nation’s resilience against modern challenges.

Mitsotakis also mentioned key initiatives, including the master plan for the revitalization and flood protection of Thessaly and new laws addressing the cost of living and inflation, as well as beach management. Additionally, he noted the successful sale of a significant stake in Piraeus Bank.

Closing his address, the Prime Minister congratulated Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos on his film “Poor Things,” which garnered 11 nominations at tonight’s Oscars ceremony.
