Firm to impose a single rate of excise duty to ouzo, and raki, similar to that which applies to alcoholic beverages, presented by the European Commission,….. despite the efforts made by the Government to freeze the increase to 2021.

Σύμφωνα με την απάντηση του Ευρωπαίου Επίτροπου Οικονομικών, Pierre Moskovisi, σε ερώτηση του Ελληνα ευρωβουλευτή, Manolis Kefalogianni, Greece will have to comply immediately with the judgment of the European Court.
