Greece: "Recession has ended", Ministry of Finances claims

Greek statistics authority Elstat announced yesterday that the rate of recession during the first quarter of 2014 was 1.1% GDP, which is a significant improvement from the 6% rate last year as daily To Vima online reported.

This has confirmed the Ministry of Finances' belief that the 1% rate of recession suggests that the recession has come to an end. Additionally, the Ministry of Finances expects a 0.6% growth rate for the rest of the year. The Finance Ministry has based its optimism on its tourism expectations, which also suggest that there will be a significant increase of tourist traffic in the second and third quarters of the year.

A Finance Ministry with a sense of humour!
