IIF head to deliver lecture in Athens on Wednesday

The managing director of the Institute of International Finance, Charles Dallara, was scheduled to deliver a lecture in Athens on Wednesday at the amphitheater of the National Bank of Greece in central Athens.

The IIF chief was in Athens on a two-day official visit and was holding also meetings with local bank executives, businessmen and government officials.

Dallara was scheduled to deliver the lecture, “Adjusting Course: a Strategy for Europe and Greece to Emerge from the Crisis,” starting at noon. A live stream of the event was set to be available on www.skai.gr.

In an interview with Kathimerini Sunday newspaper, Dallara noted that Greece’s international creditors could reduce the interest rates charged to the cash-strapped nation for its financial assistance as a way of aiding the country to get on top of its huge debts.
