Visit of a delegation from the Greek government to the EC

José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, received a delegation from the Greek government led by Antonis Samaras, Greek Prime Minister. During the joint press conference José Manuel Barroso welcomed the next Greek Presidency of the Council of the EU starting on 01/01/2014 as a great opportunity for the country, and he added that the EC would offer all its support to make it a success.
He then assured Antonis Samaras and the Greek government of the full support of the Commission over the six months of this Presidency. The President highlighted that it was a crucial time for Europe as the EC wanted to finalise key pieces of legislation before the European elections in May 2014.
On the economy, José Manuel Barroso paid tribute to the progress made by Greece under the EU/International Monetary Fund (IMF) financial assistance programme, and said that the hard work was paying off, with the economy expected to return to growth for 2014. Greece was very close to insolvency some time ago, close to a real and extremely difficult situation, from an economic and social point of view. The country could look to the future, somehow with more confidence.
The President added that the crisis gave Greece a different perspective on the Presidency of the Council of the EU. With the lessons learned from this crisis, the country could also lead the EU, bringing its special sensitivity to many problems, from the Balkans to maritime policy, which Greece knew much better than most of the EU Member States.
José Manuel Barroso eventually highlighted Greece's contribution to European - and world - civilisation.
