The best incentive for someone to return to Greece is investments, main opposition New Demcracy leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis said on Monday in discussions with Greeks living in London.

He estimated that new investments along with meritocracy in the public sector and the necessary reforms in the economy, health and justice will bring back the Greeks living abroad.

As he said, during the seven years of the crisis, a lot of young people left the country because they did not have any alternative.

“It is a new community of new-migrants. A Greece outside Greece. I do not want to use that term. You are an important part of the country outside Greece … We have to make use of this part of the Diaspora. Other countries have done so. We will try to do it with first step the voting right for the Greeks that live abroad” added Mitsotakis.

The Athens-Macedonian News Agency (AMNA) (Greek: Αθηναϊκό-Μακεδονικό Πρακτορείο Ειδήσεων, AΜΠΕ) is a Greece-based news service. It is a public entity anonymous company. It was founded in 2008 as the Athens News Agency - Macedonian Press Agency S.A. (ANA-MPA SA), under a presidential decree which merged the Athens News Agency (ANA SA) and the Macedonian Press Agency (MPA SA).
