Staikouras: Greece Returns to European Normality

ATHENS – Greece returns to European normality after several crises, Greek Finance Minister Christos Staikouras said on Monday.

Speaking to reporters, ahead of a Eurogroup meeting in Brussels, the Greek FinMin noted that the Greek economy was showing “strong resilience and has a strong dynamism” referring to the reports released by the European Commission.

Staikouras said the Greek economy was hit, along with all European economies, from a health crisis, the energy crisis and a very high inflation rate. The reports released by the European Commission showed that Greece will show a high growth rate in 2022 and will have the highest investment growth rate in 2022 and in 2023, while it has doubled its exports and continues shielding unemployment. In this environment, the Commission plans to end the enhanced surveillance status for Greece during the summer, paving the way for Greece’s return to European normality, he added.


JERUSALEM — Israel's parliament voted Thursday to dissolve itself, marking the end of a year-old experimental coalition government, and sending the country to the polls in November for the fifth time in less than four years.
