BusinessEurope expresses worries about state of Greek economy


BusinessEurope, the European business and employers’ association, issued a statement on Friday expressing worries about the state of the Greek economy ahead of Sunday’s referendum, echoing the concerns of its Greek member, the Hellenic Federation of Enterprises (SEV).
BusinessEurope President Emma Marcegaglia stated: “We are concerned about the difficult times that capital controls and the lack of progress in the negotiations have brought to the Greek population, businesses and their employees. We firmly believe in the opportunities a strong and competitive European economy offers to every European citizen and business. We hope Sunday’s referendum to be the beginning of better prospects for Greece.”
