The Governor of the Bank of Greece and Former Greek Minister of Finance, Mr Yannis Stournaras, gave the Fourteenth Hellenic Observatory Annual Lecture at LSE on Wednesday, 25 March 2015. The title of the lecture was "The Greek Economy: current developments and future prospects".

The Governor focused on Greece's achievements during the difficult years of economic adjustment and on the current developments in the Greek economy, highlighting future challenges and prospects, in view of the 20 February 2015 Eurogroup agreement and the 20 March high level agreement between the Greek government and the EU partners.

Governor Stournaras also argued why Grexit cannot be an option and listed reasons to support his argument. He also spoke about issues related to the sustainability of Greek public debt.

The lecture was followed by a lively Q&A session with the audience and a private dinner.
