February 02, 2012

Feb. 2 (Bloomberg) -- Greek Finance Minister Evangelos Venizelos told lawmakers of the socialist Pasok party that securing private-sector involvement in the latest Greek rescue package will place the country on sound footing for decades.

“To secure private and official sector involvement, we have to agree on the substance of the new program,” Venizelos said in Athens today. “Completing private-sector involvement will stabilize the country fiscally and financially. Our financing will be secure for many decades.”
