As stated in today’s statement by the Ministry of Development and Investment, the Minister noted that eThe energy crisis has already put a lot of pressure on the European economy and there may be, according to him, the usual complaints and recriminations, but the truth is that the Greek government’s electricity subsidy is the largest in the entire European Union.
“Electricity today is 11 times more expensive than last year. That is, the amount you paid for electricity last year, now multiply by 11 to get the prices that are set this year. The fact that we give a subsidy is very beneficial, because in this way we save households, small and medium-sized businesses that would be “brought to their knees” if this subsidy did not exist.“, the minister noted.

“Thus, in the coming months, in the difficult winter of 2022-2023, we will see very big positive changes regarding the economy of our country,” A. Georgiadis summed up his speech.
