Greece is expected to rebound strongly post-COVID: finance minister

Nationwide lockdown to contain the coronavirus in Athens

ATHENS (Reuters) – Greece’s economy is expected to recover strongly once the COVID-19 pandemic is over, though the longer the health crisis lasts the smaller the bounce, Finance Minister Christos Staikouras said on Monday.

Greece’s economy was expected to contract 8.2 percent this year before a second nationwide lockdown came into effect on Nov. 7.
