Task force for immediate, flexible relief to flood-ravaged areas of Greece announced by von der Leyen, Greek PM; 2.25 bln€ initial tranche

Both the EU Commission president and Mitsotakis said a task force will be created and immediately begin work

Europe will provide “quick and flexible” funding to Greece as part of measures to support the country in the wake of devastating flooding that hit the central Thessaly province, the result of last week’s intense storm front (Daniel), Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said after meeting with Greek PM Kyriakos Mitsotakis in Strasbourg on Tuesday.

“I want Greece and the Greek people to know that Europe stands at their side. A lot of investment will be necessary to rebuild and to restore their livelihoods. The @EU_Commission will be inventive, quick and flexible…Greece could mobilise up to €2.25 billion in EU funds. From unspent and front-loaded cohesion money, ESF+, @EUAgri funds. In addition, Greece can submit a request under the Solidarity Fund and consider loans under #NextGenEU,” von der Leyen said in two messages posted on Twitter.

She added that these funds will be able to restore wildfire-ravaged forests and rural infrastructure, in again referring to the 2.25-billion-euro emergency aid. Another 400 million euros will come next year from the EU’s Solidarity Fund.

Both the EU Commission president and Mitsotakis said a task force will be created and immediately begin work, within 48 hours, for fast support and maximum flexibility.

Earlier, European Parliament President Roberta Metsola said Greece should not be alone in dealing with a situation that should be dealt with by all of Europe, during her meeting with Mitsotakis.

“…From a political point of view, in terms of budget and resources, any decision that needs to be taken by the parliament will be taken as soon as possible. Because we know that this is a major disaster linked to the climate crisis and requires unprecedented efficiency and aid,” she emphasized.
