Greek economy seen growing by 4.8% in 2022, central banker says

Greece’s economy is seen growing by 4.8% in 2022 after an estimated 4.2% recovery this year, the country’s central banker said in a TV interview on Sunday.

The economy contracted by 8.2% last year, less than expected, despite much lower tourism revenues and tough restrictions the Greek government imposed to contain the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

 

In an interview with Greek Antenna television aired on Sunday, Bank of Greece Governor Yannis Stournaras said that the bank’s growth projections were uncertain as the pandemic still posed serious risks.
