Speaking before the Parliament's Economic Affairs Committee, Staikouras said that beyond the 15-year bonds, "Greece has successfully returned to the markets and managed to borrow a total of 14 billion euros at extremely low interest rates, which reached, in several cases, one third of the rates in previous years".

"We expect that the new 15-year bond issue will have a lower interest rate than the previous issue of February 2020 and this will be another example of market confidence in the Greek economy," he noted.
