Exiting from this crisis was always going to be more like a marathon than a sprint. The constant need to adapt to changing conditions is a thing that national competition authorities and the European Commission have in common. The Commission is leading the way and I'm quite proud of the results achieved since 2010. Strengthening our enforcement activity and our advocacy is not easy in these times, but this is precisely our responsibility. We do not serve private interests or corporative privileges, but the interest of every company that plays by the rules and of every consumer. Our duty is to instil openness and transparency in the markets and make sure that every player has the same opportunities to create jobs and generate growth. But the most important factor of success is the active cooperation of the population and I want to praise the Greek people for their engagement.
