Deputy PM sees Greece back in markets in 2017


Greece’s deputy prime minister said on Friday the country could return to international bond markets this year if the current impasse with the bailout creditors is resolved quickly.

Yiannis Dragasakis told a financial conference at Delphi that Greece could hold a 2017 “test auction” if negotiations with rescue lenders for the next round of loan payments are concluded “in the next few weeks.”
