  • [01] Impact of capital controls was smaller because of successful government action, says Tsakalotos

    There were economic consequences from the imposition of capital controls but the government deserves some credit for succeeding in limiting them with its actions, Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos said on Tuesday during a speech at parliament for the approval of twelve legislative acts

    "Our first concern, with the help of the Bank of Greece, was to focus on the current account in order to have access to imported products which were necessary for exports. We helped tourism by excluding tourists from the restrictions, while we established a weekly bank withdrawal limit of 420 euros, which is equivalent to a monthly salary of 1,680 euros," the minister said.

    "The result was that while the IMF's initial estimates for [Greece's] recession in 2016, was that it would reach around 4 pct, current estimates are for a 1.3 pct decline and it may be even less," he added.

    [02] German tax authorities to hand over list of Greek depositors abroad, say FinMin sources

    The tax authorities of North Rhine-Westphalia have promised to hand over a list of Greek depositors abroad, following a meeting between a delegation of the Greek finance ministry and the region's tax authorities on Tuesday in Germany

    According to ministry sources, once this list is given to Greece, it will be passed over to the economic prosecutors.

    [03] EasyJet adds three routes from Greek islands to Europe for 2016

    Low-budget carrier EasyJet announced three new routes from Greek islands to European destinations on Tuesday, which are scheduled to start next summer

    The new flights will take travellers twice a week from Rhodes to Amsterdam's Schiphol airport, starting on June 16 and from Mykonos to France's Lyon and Nice, starting from July 2. The airline will offer two flights per week to Lyon and one per week to Nice.
