Papademos Says Plan Ensures Greek Place in Euro, Averts Default

February 12, 2012

Feb. 13 (Bloomberg) -- Greek Prime Minister Lucas Papademos said an austerity and loan plan for Greece is credible, will lead the country out of its crisis and ensure its place in the euro area.

“It’s a program that will lead the country to solid ground,” Papademos told lawmakers in Athens before a vote on the package. “It is the time for decisions, it is necessary to understand that the main cause of the crisis is that for many years the state systematically spent more than its revenue.”
