Greece should reach a deal with its eurozone partners and the International Monetary Fund next week on a package of reforms, which will help to unlock remaining bailout funds, the country's economy minister said on Wednesday.
"I think talks will lead to a deal next week. The agreement will close on (Greek Orthodox) Easter week," Economy Minister George Stathakis told Skai TV.
Black Tuesdays sell-off continued during early trade on Wednesday at the Athens bourse, with the benchmark down more than 4 percent at one point. However, most stocks managed to contain their losses, and gains by some of the previous days biggest losers, including MIG and PPC, limited the damage to a drop of just 1 percent at the end of the session.
