The election of Donald Trump as president of the United States could be considered a negative for the economy but a positive for the geopolitics of Greece. The impact on Greece, which is a very small part of the global political and economic puzzle, may be indirect rather than direct.

The two leaders agreed on the need for a technical-level agreement to wrap up Greece’s bailout review at Monday’s Eurogroup meeting, as well as on debt relief by the end of the year.
