Executive summary

A myriad of factors – economic, social, cultural and political – have led to the current economic crisis in Greece. As such, a range of responses – in terms of new policies, new ways of delivering or implementing them, new ways of thinking and new ways of working – must be employed if Greece is to successfully revitalise its economy and chart a sustainable path to restore market confidence and economic growth. The primary focus to date has been in addressing the most immediate economic issues so as to target deficit levels and to meet conditional requirements set out by the troika in order to secure bailout funds. Addressing spending and expenditure issues alone will not in and of itself provide a solution for Greece. The challenge now for Greece lies in ensuring that both implementation of these issues as well as complementary reform areas are advanced and appropriately implemented without delay.
