Greece will return to bond markets next year: PM

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras at the Greek parliament in Athens on May 6, 2016Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said Saturday that Greece will return to the bond markets in 2017, seven years after losing access to the markets due to its debt crisis. “We will return to the markets in 2017,” Tsipras said in an interview with the Realnews weekly newspaper. While the eurozone country has continued to raise funds through short-term, low-risk, bonds, Greece has not had access to the medium- and long-term bond markets since 2010, when Athens sought the first of three multi-billion euro (dollar) bailouts from the EU and the International Monetary Fund.
