The release of the remaining 2.8 billion euros in bailout cash is seen by mid-October.

In an interview with Skai TV, Stathakis said that the fourth quarter will be “critical” for the economy’s course as if it ends in positive ground that will mean that the recession will be over, after three quarter of positive growth rates.

He also predicted that the economy is set to grow by 2.7% on an annual average basis to June 2017.
