The head of the BoG Mr. George Provopoulos said that the Greek government must step up structural reforms if it is to guarantee economic recovery, adding that he expects the recession to slow progressively and the first positive growth rates of GDP in 2014. Moreover, he called for fewer and stronger banks, adding that a further return of deposits and successful completion of a recapitalization plan will help the banking system to return gradually to the international capital markets.

The trade balance deficit fell by 17.2% last year on the back of a reduction in imports and increase in exports (ELSTAT).
