Following scrutiny of legislation in four sectors of the Greek economy, food processing, retail trade, building materials and tourism, this report identifies areas where reform could be undertaken to address regulatory barriers to competition in Greece.
The Greek government and the OECD are working together to assess the costs and benefits of regulations restricting competition in the tourism, retail trade, food processing and construction materials sectors and to propose specific recommendations for change.

We know that Greece is undergoing a profound and painful economic adjustment, but we are convinced that continuing down the path of ambitious reform will ultimately see a return to robust, broad-based growth that will improve the well-being of all Greek citizens, said OECD Secretary-General.
We understand how much Greek society has endured these past six years. Reform isn’t easy at the best of times, but it can be even more challenging in the face of a weak economy while at the same time trying to correct a budget deficit. But all crises come to an end. Growth does return. Now is the time to maintain the momentum of Greece’s reform drive, said OECD Secretary-General.
