Greek Morning News 25/4/2012


The General Index closed in new low levels below 700 units for the first time since January at 697.82 posting losses of 0.62%, in a turnover of €22.68mn.

The chief of BoF Mr. Giorgos Provopoulos said that the Greece’s economy will contract by a steeper-than-expected 5% this year. Greece must stick to its reform and fiscal adjustment commitments under a bailout plan agreed with its eurozone partners and the IMF to return the economy to growth.

According to an e-mailed statement from the EU’s statistics agency, the Cyprus’s budget deficit widened to 6.3% of GDP last year from 5.3% of GDP in 2010. The public debt increased to 71.6% of GDP in 2011 from 61.5% in 2010.
