Discussions on the creation of the National Development Bank will have concluded by September, a top economy ministry official told the Athens-Macedonian News Agency on Sunday.

Asked about the alternative plan proposed by the institutions, who suggested expanding the scope of the existing National Fund for Entrepreneurship and Development (ETEAN), the same official said: “We will choose the solution which will lead to faster implementation of the plan” and added that the bank’s funding will come from national funds as well as Eurozone development banks.
