Staikouras: The Greek Economy Has Not Only Shown Resilience, But Is Becoming Stronger

September 7, 2022

ATHENS – “In one of the most difficult and tumultuous periods of modern world history, the Greek economy has not only shown resilience, but is becoming stronger, and even presents favourable prospects, given of course the significant challenges of the time,” Finance Minister Christos Staikouras said on Wednesday, commenting on ELSTAT’s release of the GDP figures for the second quarter.

Staikouras pointed out that, after the latest data, GDP growth in 2022 will be higher than the initial estimates.

He added that the priority of the economic policy is “dealing with the energy crisis and its effects, so that we can overcome this test and continue on the path of high and sustainable growth, the creation of many well-paid new jobs and the strengthening of social cohesion.”


A group of 77 migrants were rescued off a crippled sailing yacht after a large overnight operation in the southern Aegean Sea, Greek authorities said Monday.
