Speakers are seen on the stage of a banking conference in Athens yesterday. Steven Major, head of global fixed-income research at HSBC (right), said it is very likely Greece will return to the market to finance its debt at the end of 2011 on the condition that it meets fiscal targets and goes ahead with its reforms program. The others pictured are (from 2nd right to left) Aryam Vazquez, vice president and economist for country risk in global emerging markets at Wells Fargo, journalist Dimitris Kontogiannis and John E. Charalambakis, a professor at the University of Kentucky and chief economist at Blackstone Financial Group.
