  • [01] PM: Greece emerging stronger from the crisis

    New York (ANA-MPA) -- Greece is on the right track, prime minister George Papandreou said early Tuesday (Greek time) during a visit to the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), stressing also that this has been widely acknowledged and "that gives us the strength to carry on with the changes necessary so that we will be not only proud of our country but we will have the Greece and the economy that we deserve".

    "Here, at the NYSE, we had the opportunity to present the great changes we have made in recent months in Greece. We presented our tough but successful course in reducing the deficit, on the one hand, but also, on the other hand, all the new opportunities arising for investments in our country, for investments in transports, tourism, green development and elsewhere," the Greek premier added.

    Papandreou also sat at a lunch hosted by NYSE Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Duncan Niederauer, which was attended by Wall Street officials and senior executives of US financial and credit institutions.

    After the lunch Papandreou, accompanied by Niederauer, signed the NYSE visitors' book while, in reply to press questions, stressed that Greece is emerging stronger from the crisis and noted that there was now a climate of optimism not only for the Greek but also the European economy.
