Greek Premier: Prepaid special consumption tax to be returned to winemakersMitsotakis announced the government's decision to support the winemaking sector and especially Greek wine exports

The government will soon be passing legislation that will allow a return of the prepaid special consumption tax on wine to winemakers, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said at his meeting on Friday with winemakers at a winery in the region of Imathia, according to ANA.

The prime minister announced that the government will try to include this legislation in the new draft budget that is expected to be put to a vote in the next two or three weeks, noting that the special consumption tax on wine was an unfair tax introduced by former the SYRIZA government. 

Mitsotakis announced the government's decision to support the winemaking sector and especially Greek wine exports, increasing the land devoted to vine cultivation and wine production. He stressed the importance of high quality and briefed them regarding his contacts during his recent visit to China, with the aim of promoting Greek wines.
