According to the government, the main goal of the Greek recovery plan is to fill the huge gap in investment, national products, and employment — the local gap in the performance of the Greek economy in the past decade — due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In this context, the "National Recovery and Sustainable Development Plan" aims to mobilize important forces in the private sector, promote private investment, and use public-private partnerships and energy service companies to make significant public investment efforts. Using these funds and using loans from the Recovery Fund to promote private investment, "Greece 2.0" aims to mobilize total investment resources of 57 billion euros. Editor/Xu Shengpeng
