- The Prime Minister pointed out that Greece is a proven safe country, located “at the crossroads of three continents”, with modern telecommunications infrastructure and has a government that is “proponent of entrepreneurship and reform-oriented.”
This during a period when Turkey is trying to provoke Greece into open conflict on a daily basis, the day after the government had to tell people not to use the Internet between 9am and 6pm, because it couldn't cope with the volume of traffic, and the system they had bought to provide distance learning for secondary school children totally crashed after the first lesson. To add insult to injury this is a comment from the abstract of a research report:
- The findings point to the fact that 'old' management techniques, bureaucratic structures, lack of financial support by governmental sources and the lack of university–business cooperation hinder the process of innovation in Greek SMEs
Admittedly the report is 13 years old but has anything really changed very much?
