Hello Everyone!

Today has been a remarkable day for Greece. 

Greece had a plebiscite on austerity.  The people delivered the message with NO vote.

I would like to convey my heartfelt Congratulations to the citizens in Greece and the government headed by Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis of the political party Syriza along with independent party in coalition representing the people of Greece.

You have truly spoken in the referendum with your NO vote. Your rejection of austerity.

I consider this a victory to Democracy.

Democracy is in action for the fist time in the world standing up against counterproductive policy.

Greece introduced democracy to the world. Once again Greece restored democracy to make people choice relevant.

Citizens in Greece, you have taken a bold decision that required courage and enormous will. You have demonstrated your pledge of allegiance to your country.

Every one of you must be proud of yourself for this incredible action.

The immediate future might be turbulent for you.

You have been through so much in the past 8 years.

You are in a position to weather the storm. This will not be anything as compared with what you have endured up until now.

There is lot of speculation and commentary about what might happen to Greece?

This is directly related to your present and future. All that you need to remember is Greece has been around for a long time well before and during the crisis.

Greece will be able to deal with any problems now on.

You had to go through extremely difficult time. The world witnessed your pain.

Life experience serves as the strength to face any challenges in the long term.

When you reflect on the past you realize that you were able to survive the worst time in your life and now have the resolve not to succumb to any crisis.

The time might appear uncertain with no guaranteed outcome. However, you should not let this become a permanent situation.

Mistakes made in the past are not to be repeated again.

Strong commitment is required to face the upcoming changes and with due diligence, wisdom and perseverance you could transform the economic status from recession to recovery.

You have stood behind the government headed by Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and the political party Syriza as well as the coalition.

The government will have to move ahead to lead the country in the path of progress.

The first step would be to find financial solutions to the cash strapped economy and emerging out of capital deficiency. Furthermore implementing critical fiscal and monetary policy besides improving macroeconomic conditions and adopting result-oriented strategy are the keys to success.

You will not be alone in this journey.

I will be providing you with a comprehensive guidance and restructuring of the economy for your reference and application.

Unity and collective responsibility would make the task less burdensome.

Greece has taken a new birth with hope that will turn into reality through efficiency and determination to prevail.

Good Luck to citizens in Greece and the government under leadership Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and others or speedy economic revival.

Peace to all!

Thank you.
