Vastavam web:  Greece will remain under supervision after it exits its current bailout and Athens must achieve “economic and political stability,” the head of a group of Eurozone finance ministers said today.Greece has received two multi-billion euro bailouts since 2010. The third rescue programme, currently financially supported by EU states alone, runs to August 2018 and Athens then hopes to fully return to market financing.”In all cases where we have had support programmes, the countries have had to submit to a programme of supervision after it ended as happened in Ireland, Spain or Cyprus,” he said.
“In Greece we will also have a supervision programme especially since there are outstanding debts with long repayments.” Earlier this month, Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said the country’s Grexit status had changed and it was now attracting investors in droves.”In 2016, direct foreign investments were the highest in the last 10 years and in 2017 further improvement is expected,” Tsipras said.wo years after Tsipras’s leftist government nearly crashed Greece out of the euro, and eight years after the country plunged into economic crisis, employment numbers are finally improving.
