Greece’s non-performing loans: A major hurdle to economic revival
As US President Donald Trump reaffirmed his commitment to Greece’s economic revival during Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras’ official visit to Washington, the country’s banking sector continues to struggle with the longstanding issue of excessive non-performing loans (NPLs).

In November 2016, OPEC members pledged to reduce their oil output by about 1.2 million barrels per day (bpd) for six months, starting January 2017. Subsequently, 11 non-OPEC oil producers, including Russia, teamed up with OPEC by agreeing to lower their output by 558,000 bpd.
The deal is in its fifth month, and OPEC members have showed better compliance compared with their efforts during the last such attempt in 2008–09. The latest survey by Reuters shows that OPEC’s oil production declined for a fourth consecutive month in April, as the world’s biggest oil exporter, Saudi Arabia, continued to maintain its oil production below the target level. However, higher-than-expected production by the UAE and Angola weighed on OPEC’s compliance, which slipped to 90% in April from a revised 92% in March.

Emmanuel Macron, independent centrist and former investment banker, who had never fought an election before, won convincingly over far-right nationalist Marine Le Pen in the French presidential race. This proved to be a historic election in various aspects as neither candidate belonged to the traditional French parties. The unparalleled campaign was marked by scandal and repeated surprises.
According to the French interior ministry, Emmanuel Macron was elected French president with an estimated 66% votes, while rival Marine Le Pen managed to grab just 34% votes. At the age of 39, Macron becomes the country’s youngest president. France’s 47 million voters chose their president from among radically different platforms: the free-trade, the pro-EU policies of Macron’s En Marche! (Let’s Go!) party and the protectionist nationalism of Le Pen’s National Front.

2016 was a landmark year, as the world saw right wing populism gain momentum worldwide. The world is facing widespread discontent, evident from the shocking Brexit referendum and Donald Trump’s victory in the US presidential elections. Europe, especially, saw one crisis unfold after another year long. In June 2016, the UK, a key member of the European Union (EU) stunned most global political pundits as the British voted to leave the EU. Moreover, Greece’s debt crisis and subsequent confrontations with European creditors fanned speculations of an imminent ‘Grexit’ throughout the year. Also, Italian PM Matteo Renzi had to step down after losing a referendum on constitutional reforms.

Just like most of us, Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras must be looking forward to the New Year with new exuberance and optimism, as he seeks to bring the economy back on track. Greece is still struggling to recover from a decade-long debt crisis as it still heavily depends on its Eurozone creditors. The year 2017 is touted as a very crucial phase for Greece’s economy, especially after the strong fiscal discipline shown by the government (amid tumbling popularity due to austerity measures) in the most part of 2016.
