Negotiations and stamina

Negotiations between the coalition government and the troika of international lenders must be brought to a conclusion as soon as possible.

The current climate of uncertainty in Greece is wiping out any prospect of recovery, while battering the market’s psychology and keeping away any potential investors who might be interested in doing business here.

It is no coincidence that the market has remained practically frozen ever since the day talk regarding the adoption of new austerity measures started to emerge in various local media outlets.

There is no doubt that the negotiations between Greek officials and the representatives of the country’s creditors is no easy task. However, common ground must be found soon, while the troika must finally understand the capabilities and endurance levels of Greek society, as well as the limits of the country’s political system.
