The General Index in Athens Stock Exchange (ASE) closed at 528.14 posting profits of 1.86% in a turnover of €38.35mn.

The EC’s spokesperson for Economic and Monetary Affairs Mr. Amadeu Altafaj said that Greece needs to do more to clamp down on tax evasion, stressing that reform to the tax system is one of the most fundamental components of the country’s bailout agreement with its creditors. He added that there will be no mission to Greece from the country΄s official lenders until a new government is in place.

ECB Governing Council member Mr. Ewald Nowotny said that the prime objective is to keep Greece in the euro area, adding that this is something that doesn’t only depend on the side of the European authorities, but also on the decisions of Greek people and their government.
