ATHENS Oct 11 Greece must wait for a second
review of its economic progress by its international lenders
before tapping financial markets, Central Bank Governor Yannis
Stournaras said on Tuesday.
"There is a distance from this (market access)...It cannot
happen before the second review is concluded," Stournaras told
"We have to expedite the second review," he added.
Greece signed up to a bailout worth up to 86 billion euros
in mid-2015, contingent on a string of economic reforms. On
Monday, euro zone finance ministers gave a positive review of
the most recent reforms, but divided up the latest tranche of
aid to Athens pending further submission of data by Greece.
The second review is expected to start in mid-October.
