Bank of Greece: Structural Reforms

(GREEK NEWS AGENDA)  Speaking at an event organised by the Foundation for Economic and Industrial Research (IOBE) on Monday, Bank of Greece Governor George Provopoulos emphasised the need for an extensive framework of structural reforms, mainly in the wider public sector, pointing out that for as long as Greece’s monetary issues continue to shake investors’ and markets’ confidence, the economy will not be restored easily. Provopoulos also underlined that the Greek banks remain healthy and strong and their fundamental indices are satisfactory.  The IOBE event celebrated the enactment of the “IOBE Excellence” to be awarded to people for contributing to the economy with their overall activity, as well as the establishment of a new, annual event at which a distinguished personality from Greece or abroad will address current or structural problems of the Greek and international economy.
