    BRUSSELS (ANA-MPA / V. Demiris) -- Greek annual inflation rate fell to 2.2 pct in December 2008, from 3.0 pct in November, Eurostat said on Thursday. The EU executive‚s statistics agency, in a report, said the inflation rate in the Eurozone fell to 1.6 pct in December from 2.1 pct in November and after a 3.1 pct figure in December 2007. In the EU-27, the inflation rate fell to 2.2 pct, from 2.8 pct in November and 3.2 pct in December 2007.

    Luxembourg (0.7 pct), Portugal (0.8 pct) and Germany (1.1 pct) recorded the lowest inflation rates, while Latvia (10.4 pct), Lithuania (8.5 pct) and Estonia (7.5 pct) the highest rates.

    [02] NBG in Top 150 index

    National Bank on Thursday said it will be included in the Global Dow -Top 150, an index including the top 150 companies around the world.

    In a statement, National Bank said this development was even more important given the very negative international situation in the credit sector. The index is a product of cooperation between Dow Jones and Wall Street Journal and aims at highlighting the current and future leaders in the global corporate world. It evaluates the performance of 150 top companies for their innovation, dynamism and influence on their fields.

    National Bank said the development placed its shares among a list of top shares around the world and attracts the attention of a wider range of international investors.
