Greek EU Presidency of Hope
Greece is commencing the EU presidency with a positive performance: a primary surplus and an imminent recovery, Prime Minister Antonis Samaras stated upon his arrival at the EU summit in Brussels, on December 19. The Greek Presidency "will be a presidency of hope; hope for more Europe and a better Europe," he noted.
Last but not least, the banking union, after Wednesday’s ECOFIN decision, will be handled by the Greek presidency over the next six months. Today, Samaras will outline to the European Council the priorities of the Greek Presidency in the first half of 2014.
