GREEK FINANCIAL MARKET
The General Index in Athens Stock Exchange (ASE) closed at 1,305.16 posting profits of 1.49%, in a turnover of €388.63mn.
The Greek economy performed better than expected in the first quarter of this year, shrinking by 0.9%, compared to a contraction of 1.1% estimated in May. The quarterly figure is the smallest since 2008, before Greece’s debt crisis hit (ELSTAT).
The Prime Minister Mr. Antonis Samaras replaced the Finance Minister Mr. Yannis Stournaras with the economist Mr. Gikas Hardouvelis. As expected, Mr. Stournaras left the Finance Ministry and is likely to take the top post at the Bank of Greece, replacing Mr. Giorgos Provopoulos, whose term expires later this month. The new cabinet is to be sworn in during a ceremony today.
