Papandreou stressed that development legislation and business incentives were not a panacea for the revival of economic growth
but only part of an overall effort towards a sustainable and competitive model of Greece
To achieve this, he noted, Greece must take advantage of the present opportunity in two ways.
- Firstly, by facilitating entrepreneurship and abolishing bureaucratic obstacles to creating and operating an enterprise.
- And, secondly, by creating a climate of transparency and legitimacy that…
will help the country attract the kind of investment that corresponds to a new developmental model
This is positive news, it is a critical condition for donors, to the Kommos Conservancy, that wish to give contributions to the conservation of the excavated architectural artifacts and towards the development of the archaeological park.
Expanding on the existing recreational beach tourism that currently exist adjacent to the Kommos archaeological site with existing cultural heritage tour operations that occur in the Mesara at Phaistos and Hagia Triada will produce the type of expanded economic growth that Prime Minister Papandreou has referenced above. As the archaeological site progresses towards a publicly accessible archaeological park, the economic benefits to existing restaurant, retail and hotel infrastructure will undoubtedly occur.
