There is “mature interest” among China’s financial institutions in launching activities in Greece, Chinese Ambassador in Athens Zhang Qiyue informed Government Vice-President and Economy and Development Minister Yiannis Dragasakis in a meeting on Thursday, according to a ministry announcement.

The ambassador and the minister both reaffirmed the strategic nature of Greek-Chinese relations and repeated the commitment of the leadership of the two countries for close cooperation on all levels.

Dragasakis noted that Greece’s exit from the programmes meant it had a greater degree of freedom to design policy and marked the start of a new phase whose goals were economic growth, social cohesion and an upgraded regional, European and global role for the country.
