Finance Minister Gikas Hardouvelis said in a television interview aired on Monday that Greece needs money to start flowing into the country, «and a way to achieve that is privatizations.”

Speaking to the CNBC network from Milan, Hardouvelis stressed that «there is a lot of interest in Greek ports, airports and other companies… This is because investors do see that there is only upside potential in the country, the economy has stabilized after a lengthy, lengthy recession of about six years.”

He also spoke of how «the Greeks have matured as individuals» over the last four years of austerity measures.
