Moody’s Says Stress Tests Results Positive for Greek Banks

ATHENS — The results of ECB's stress tests on Greek banks were positive, Moody's said in a report. The credit rating agency said that the adequacy of supervisory capital will allow Greek banks to implement their restructuring plans, which will reduce the remaining stock of non-performing loans, improving profitability. At the same time, the results of the stress test round showed that Greek banks were gradually returning to normality.

Moody's also noted that all adjusted capital adequacy rates in the adverse scenario, combined with the methodology of the stress tests showed that Greek banks can continue the implementation of restructuring plans aiming to improve profitability to 10 pct and to reduce non-performing exposure to 5 pct.


ATHENS - Renewable energy sources will cover 50% of electricity demand in Greece by the end of 2022, Environment and Energy Minister Costas Skrekas said on Wednesday.
