ATHENS -Officials abroad believe Greece has done much better than expected, Central Bank Governor Yannis Stournaras said on Saturday, following a series of meetings with officials and bankers in Washington.
Stournaras is attending the annual conference of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank in the US capital. On the sidelines of these conferences, he met with the head of the European Central Bank, Mario Draghi, and other bankers from private financial institutions and investment funds.
“Everyone now believes Greece did better than expected, as it was mentioned during IMF meetings. And this is important and everyone wants this progress to continue,” Stournaras said.
The central banker said he is scheduled to meet IMF’s Managing Director Christine Lagarde on Sunday and several US government officials in the next few days.
Asked whether the country is moving on to the next phase, Stournaras said: “This is exactly what we want. To enter into a new relationship.”
