FinMin Tsakalotos to speak at Brussels Economic Forum on Thursday

Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos will address the Brussels Economic Forum 2016 on “Structural Reforms and Inclusive Growth” on Thursday, in which European Commissioner for Financial Affairs Pierre Moscovici will also participate.

The panel discussion is scheduled for 13:30-15:00 (Brussels time).

In an interview with Bloomberg published earlier today, the minister said Greek bonds will soon become eligible for the European Central Bank’s asset-purchase program (known as QE) which will open the way for an easing of capital controls and a gradual restoring of investor confidence. “QE could follow as soon as July’s maturing debt is paid … I feel confident Greek debt will be eligible” by September, he noted.
