The Greek Government will soon present a Bill to the Parliament on the “Social and Solidarity Economy and the development of its agencies”, in order to expand to other forms of enterprises the scope of the 2011 Law on cooperatives, which no longer meets current needs.
This law will therefore focus on cooperatives, collaborative work as well as on mutual societies, associations and foundations. According to CECOP,, most of the provisions are actually to define and regulate social cooperatives and associated work.
The Greek Minister of Employment, Rania Antonopoulou, has set among the objectives of the law the development of “all small businesses”, including those addressing needs of education, health, employment, environment and support to migrants.
Parmi les objectifs de la Ministre adjointe de l’Emploi, Rania Antonopoulou, qui porte cette loi, figure le développement des “toutes petites entreprises”, dont celles répondant à des besoins d’éducation, de santé, d’emploi, d’environnement et de soutien des migrants.
