Thursday, 01 January 1970
Germany will discuss setting up a bilateral programme to help small and medium-sized companies in Greece, German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble said on Monday as quoted by news agency Reuters.
Schaeuble will discuss the plan with his Greek counterpart, Yannis Stournaras, at ministerial meetings in Luxembourg this week and later in Athens.
Germany has established a similar programme to help SMEs in Spain. It has agreed to grant Spanish SMEs about 1 billion euro ($1.33 billion) in aid as part of a push to combat rising unemployment in southern Europe.
