Meanwhile, during a Franco-Greek economic forum held in Paris Wednesday, French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire hailed Greece’s economic recovery and urged French companies to invest in the country.
“You need to seize the opportunities because the Greek government is taking the necessary measures so that you can invest under the best possible conditions,” Le Maire was quoted as saying.
