Greek debt crisis: Banks reopen after three weeks
July 20 , 2015
Banks in Greece are reopening after a three-week shutdown triggered by the country’s debt crisis. Last week, the Greek government reached an agreement with its lenders that helped avoid a possible exit from the single currency.
Greeks have been queuing up in lines every day to withdraw the maximum of €60 per day, a limit introduced by the government. From Monday, the daily restrictions will become weekly, with a withdrawal limit of €420 per week, providing some relief to citizens.
