GREECE EXTENDS TOURISM SEASON INTO WINTER
“Our fellow citizens should not feel that because of the economic crisis they could not go on vacation this year,” he said. Moreover, the Greek PM announced that the reduced VAT on transport, coffee and non-alcoholic drinks will be extended until June 2023. Aiming to boost more permanent job positions, the Greek PM announced an incentive for businesses to convert part-time employee contracts to permanent ones.
“In order to create more permanent jobs, from tomorrow until the end of 2023 all companies that convert part-time contracts of their employees into permanent ones will be exempted from 40% of the insurance contributions of those employees,” he said. Broken down, the new package of 21 support measures announced by PM Mitsotakis includes eight support measures to be implemented immediately by the end of 2022, another 12 permanent measures to go into force at the beginning of 2023 and a major support scheme that focuses on housing, especially for young people.
