Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras meets with the Hellenic Bank Association

Economic indices are positive and the figures released by the Hellenic Statistical Authority are encouraging, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said on Friday in a meeting with the leadership of the Hellenic Bank Association (HBA).

Tsipras added that the Greek economy can register growth rates approaching 2 pct of GDP in 2017, for the first time in over a decade.

“‘What is needed,” he said, “is to maintain fiscal balance, provide liquidity tools and increase demand to help the Greek economy grow.”
