Greece’s Prime Minister vows early repayment of bailout loans


Greece’s Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has pledged to repay the country’s first bailout loans two years ahead of schedule.

In an interview with Bloomberg TV, Mitsotakis said Greece will be able to repay the loans by the current year’s end, in a “commitment to investors.”

“The first goal, and I think it’s a very tangible goal, is to get to investment grade before the end of the year,” he said.

“We are already trading as if we are an investment grade country, but we also need the official stamp of approval by the rating agencies.”

The Greek Prime Minister added that he intends to render the country a very attractive destination for foreign investments.
