Dec. 28 (Bloomberg) -- Greek Prime Minister Lucas Papademos held a meeting with officials in Athens today to discuss specific actions to create 153,00 jobs in the first three months of next year and to support vulnerable segments of society.
“Unemployment and the deep recession undermine social cohesion and hurt the weakest social groups,” an e-mailed statement from Papademos’s Athens-based office said. “A permanent and sustainable solution to the problem of unemployment can lead to growth, entrepreneurship and regaining an environment of economic stability.”
Greek Finance Minister Evangelos Venizelos, Athens Mayor George Kaminis, government spokesman Pantelis Kapsis and Health Minister Andreas Loverdos and church offcials were among those who attended the meeting, the statement said.
