Mitsotakis meets Eurogroup president

Less than a decade ago, the country was teetering on the brink of default, with its economy having lost a quarter of its output, a soaring debt burden, and global investors deeming its markets uninvestable. In 2012, the country implemented the largest debt restructuring in history. In 2015, it introduced capital controls.
