3. Tangible rewards for alliance-building

https://knews.kathimerini.com.cy/en/comment/opinion/tangible-rewards-for-alliance-building

Greece's military spending has shrunk dramatically as a result of the crisis, widening the defense gap with Turkey. Successive Greek governments have spent billions on armaments over the past few decades, yet there is very little to show for it in terms of a defense industry. After an ambitious start, state-owned firms such as the Hellenic Aerospace Industry (EAV) and others were gradually choked by mismanagement from political parties and unionism...

9. Recovering lost ground

https://knews.kathimerini.com.cy/en/comment/opinion/recovering-lost-ground

The government that has just taken power in Greece is different to what we are accustomed to and close to what a big chunk of the population is eager to see. The center-right administration appears well-prepared.

That said, in politics plans can be undone by unforeseen events. ...

It is hoped that this spirit will continue during the debates that are expected to take place in Parliament, not only in the sense of a more sophisticated rhetoric, but also, hopefully, in the approval of some government bills by the new main opposition....
