‘Greece has overcome most of the challenges,’ Fairfax Financial Holdings chief says

Greece’s economy, after many years of difficulties, is now becoming an attractive destination for investments and its prospects for growth are good, Fairfax Financial Holdings Chairman Prem Watsa said on Tuesday at an event organised in his honour by the Eurolife ERB Group in Athens.

“The Greek economy has gone through many difficulties in recent years. I believe that the country has overcome most of the challenges and for this reason I am quite optimistic about the future,” Watsa said. Fairfax Financial Holdings believed in the growth of Greece’s insurance market and this was proved by the successful investment in the Eurolife ERB Group, Watsa added.
