Greece will enjoy investment growth, Attica Bank’s head says

“All estimates made by international organizations so far show that Greece will have a rising trend in investments in 2017, 2018 and 2019, with OECD expecting an annual growth rate of around 8.0 pct in 2018 and 2019, a very positive development after investments fell in the period 2008-2015 leaving a huge investment deficit in the country,” Panagiotis Roumeliotis, chairman of Attica Bank said on Wednesday.

In a radio interview, Roumeliotis said that new investments – mostly co-funded by the EU’s structural funds – were basically related to export activity changing the country’s production model. The chairman of Attica Bank said that markets have already received the message and that as August approaches the climate will improve, enabling Greece to return to capital markets at last.
