  • [01] Greece honors French presidency general secretary Claude Gueant

    PARIS (ANA-MPA / O. Tsipira) -- Greece on Thursday afternoon will award the Medal of the Grand Cross of the Order of the Phoenix to Claude Gueant, the general secretary of the French presidency.

    Minister of State Haris Pamboukis will represent Republic President Karolos Papoulias in the ceremony, to take place here at the Greek Ambassador's residence.

    "The medal awarded is in recognition of the valuable and continuous support offered by Mr. Gueant to Greek national issues and to Greece during the tough times our country is experiencing as a result of the economic crisis," Greek ambassador Constantine Halastanis said.

    Gueant is the French President's close associate since 2002 and in 2007 he was the director of the French President Nicolas Sarkozy's election campaign.

    [02] Greek bond yields deflate

    (ANA-MPA) -- The yield spread between the 10-year Greek and German benchmark bonds shrank further to 834 basis points in midday trading on the Greek electronic secondary bond market on Thursday, down from 840 bps at the opening and around 1,000 bps on Monday, following a spectacular decline in bond spreads in other regional European countries.

    Expectations that the EU will agree on measures to finally deal with a debt crisis hitting regional Europe, have significantly improved market sentiment, allowing European governments to smoothly auction state bond issues in the last few days. (ANA-MPA)
