  • [01] GovÔt: '╠emorandum extension out of the question'

    (┴═┴-╠PA) -- "Extension of the memorandum after 2013 is out of the question. We have specific targets that we observe strictly. No new memorandum is on the way," government spokesman Giorgos Petalotis stressed on Tuesday in response to repeated press questions.

    He also underlining that "our goal is to be in the international (borrowing) markets as soon as possible, even before the memorandum ends."

    He pointed out that Tuesday's T-bill auction went "extremely well", yielding 3.98 pct and was 6.25 times oversubscribed -- compared to 3.85 pct in the previous auction. He also stressed that it was worth noting that 72 pct of the investors were foreign, "which means that our country's credibility is regained step-by-step."

    Responding to a question on whether there is a change in the government policy, Petalotis stated that the government meets all the goals it has set to get the country out of the crisis.

    On the occasion of a relevant reference made by PM George Papandreou at the New York Stock Exchange, Petalotis said "we are determined to utilise the state-owned real estate ... past dysfunctions will cease."

    On the liberalisation of the road freight market, Petalotis underlined that the government is determined to have the relevant legislation passed because it guarantees social justice. He also said the government engaged in exhaustive dialogue with truck owners, adding that despite their protests, traffic and market supplies are adequate.
