Greek PM Says Greece to Return to Growth in 2014
Monday, 09 September 2013
Greece will return to growth next year, prime minister Antonis Samaras said on Saturday, as quoted by Reuters.
The 2013 slump would be "smaller than forecast” and Greece will exit the recession next year, Samaras said in an address to the Thessaloniki trade fair, as quoted by Reuters.
"This year was the hardest, the most crucial, and it turned out to be the most successful, Samaras also said.
Greece will beat this year's main fiscal target of achieving a surplus on its primary budget, which excludes debt financing, allowing it to seek further debt relief from its euro zone partners, the prime minister added.
