Greek authorities examines plan to issue shipping bonds in the Athens Stock Exchange

Greek authorities are examining ways to issue shipping corporate bonds in the Athens Stock Exchange.
The issue was discussed during a meeting at the Merchant Shipping ministry with officials from the Capital Market Commission, Finance ministry, the Bank of Greece, and others.

A new meeting is expected to be held in the next few days after officials agreed to support the initiative by Merchant Shipping Minister Panagiotis Kouroumblis. The issue needs a more comprehensive action as shipping companies -mostly operating abroad- are healthy while the country still has capital control limitations.
