    [02] T-bill auction next week

    Greece will auction a scheduled three-month Treasury bills issue on Tuesday, 15 March.

    The auction is for a regularly scheduled T-bill issue, the head of Greece's Public Debt Management Organisation Petros Christodoulou said in a statement to Reuters news agency, given that liquidity was adequate at this time, and therefore "there is no need to proceed with an issue of interest-bearing treasury bills next week".

    Christodoulou further said that Greece will return to the markets in April with the next issue of Treasury bills.
