Greek debt sustainable despite pandemic, says Fitch

Greece’s debt stock will remain very high for a long time, but debt sustainability is underpinned by several mitigating factors, Fitch Ratings said in a new report on Monday.

We expect the debt ratio to remain at this level this year before declining to 193% by 2022, the credit rating agency said.
