Greek FinMin Staikouras Announces New Favourable Regulation for Pandemic Debt

ATHENS – Finance Minister Christos Staikouras in an interview with the Open TV on Saturday announced a new favourable regulation for the debts of the pandemic.

As he said, the relevant discussion has already started with the institutions in the context of the 11th evaluation, while next week the issue will be raised in the contacts with the heads of the institutions with a view to implementing a new regulation for the debts of the 15-month period of the pandemic. These are the debts that have been postponed for 2022, while the new regulation may include other household debts that were created during the pandemic.

We have a comprehensive plan for the debts of the last 15 months, the finance minister said, who noted that the issue of the new regulation will dominate the discussions of the 11th evaluation, as was the reduction of taxes and contributions implemented by the government during the 10th evaluation.

The minister described the course of the Greek economy as satisfactory, reiterating the forecast for a recovery of 3.6 pct this year, although as he noted, according to a number of other estimates, the GDP growth may reach 5 pct.
