Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou held a meeting with representatives of the Greek business world and labor unions Thursday, seeking consensus on his government’s austerity policies, as Greek economy and people face a harsh autumn.
 
Social partners expressed objections to certain measures introduced so far and structural reforms underway, presenting the Greek premier with a string of alternative proposals to overcome the acute economic crisis the country faces.
 
“It is important to reach a national strategy through dialogue. It is important we show that despite different opinions, there is a national effort,” said Papandreou during the meeting in the presence of many cabinet ministers.
