Klaus Regling says Greece could return to the markets in near future

The head of the European Stability Mechanism (ESM) Klaus Regling said it is feasible for Greece to return to the markers in the near future, according to an interview with German newspaper “Bild”.

“If Greece remains in a reforming trajectory, it will be able to issue the first government bonds again, perhaps even during this year or in 2018 at the latest,” he was quoted as saying.

At the same time, the German economist calls for swift decisions on the disbursement of the next loan installment for Greece as part of its current third support aid program.
