Greece Enters New Era, PM Says

The recent agreement with the international lenders is an acknowledgement of Greece's progress in fiscal adjustment and the implementation of reforms, signalling a new era for the country, Prime Minister Antonis Samaras said, as quoted by the Athens News Agency - Macedonian Press Agency.

"The fiscal targets achieved, especially the primary surplus, usher in a new era, in which Greece will not need to ask for loans every so often in order to deal with running operations, and they signal a Greece that is far more independent that it has ever been in the past," the news agency quoted Samaras as saying.

"All predictions of a Greece disaster are proven wrong, and those who circulated them, expected them and sought them have become obsolete themselves... A sad chapter ends for Greece and a new era is beginning - one that will release at last its great growth potential and will (transform it) into a true example of competitiveness, extroversion and prosperity," he added.
