President Pavlopoulos stresses need to support social security system

Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos on Tuesday, in a meeting with the President of the Employers’ Group of the European Economic and Social Committee J.Krawczyk, stressed the need to support the Greek social security system since the people have made huge sacrifices in order to remain in the European Union and the eurozone.

Pavlopoulos underlined that the Greek social security system suffered a huge blow from the PSI, explaining that without the haircut of the Greek bonds, the social security system could have been sustainable for many years.

On his part, Krawczyk underlined that Greece belongs to the European Union and the European family adding that all EU member states should support social cohesion and social dialogue aiming at social welfare.
