  • [01] PM Alexis Tsipras visits Kalamata on Friday

    Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras visits the coastal city of Kalamata in the southern Peloponnese on Friday.

    Tsipras will arrive at the Kalamata Special School at 11:30 and then meet the local mayor Panagiotis Nikas at 12:30 at the town hall. At 13:30 he will take part in a ceremony inaugurating the Kalamata ring road at the bridge of the River Nedon.

    [02] An agreement in January will gives us access to the quantitative easing programme, says FinMin Tsakalotos

    "The Greek economy that has recorded, for third consecutive quarter, positive growth rates needs a clear corridor for the next years" said Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos in an interview with Efimerida ton Syntakton newspaper on Friday.

    "An agreement in January will allow us to enter in the quantitative easing programme and to avoid getting into a new circle of uncertainty" he stated.

    He said that Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras' announcements on the Christmas bonus to the pensioners with low income is not the real problem in the negotiation with the institutions, the real problem is that some member states do not want to be 'generous' with the debt relief.

    However, he claims that "of course there can be an agreement" without IMF's participation in the Greek programme noting that "on its part the IMF should have the courage to state clearly its position and to really press towards the relief of the Greek debt and to not have unreasonable demands based on arbitrary calculations".

    He said that a two-speed euro is not a realistic scenario claiming that without " a more democratic and social solution the euro is at stake".

    Tsakalotos said that in January's Eurogroup the government hopes the three pillars of the current negotiation to conclude which are the reforms and the fiscal gap within the programme, the course of the primary surpluses after the end of the programme and the mid-term and long-term measures for the debt"

    [03] IOBE forecasts 35.5 pct increase in industry investment in 2017
