Greek Debt Official report: How many billions of euros has Greece to pay back until 2057?

After two bailouts and one debt restructure, Greece’s debt is still exorbitantly high and the country will need another 42 years to pay back what it owes to its lenders, provided that no new debt will be added, not extra interest rates will be added up in case of inability to serve the debt. Year in, year out Greece will have to pay an average of 10 billion euro to the International Monetary Fund, the European Central Bank, to the EU and each EU country separately, and several financing institutions.

According to the Data submitted to the Greek Parliament by the Public Debt Management Agency (ODDHX)

The Debt of the Public Administration at 30. April 2015 after swaps was:

312,679,022,950 euro or just €312.6 billion

Analytically the debt in euro is distributed in:

•Treasury bills: 14,943,985,150
• Bonds: 39,380,106,240
• Bonds ANFA: 7,309,342,288

Public Administration reserves on 31. March 2015

Greek debt

Merkel and Hollande

And if we want to know who holds the majority of the Greek debt… it is Germany and France, the new Axis of the eurozone. And now we know, why German Chancellor Angela Merkel keeps leading around French President Francois Hollande. It’s for the sake of their mutual interest.

According to Brussels think tank the official exposure of Germany and France to Greece amounts to close to €160 billion.

PS And if we remain happily married to our creditors ever after, we will keep feeding them with money we do not have.

Each Greek aged 0-100 has an average debt of  €30,000. That is for the next 42 years each Greek will have to pay annually to the lenders at least €714. Independently of whether he has income or not, suffers from recession, austerity and unemployment. Or he has simply passed away.

  1. This is a wealth of information thanks for posting.

    Ill have to take issue with your conclusion though. First of all the yearly payment vary a lot from year to year so just averaging them doesnt say that much. But more importantly even if there is an economic miracle and everything is going rosy for the next 42 year the state wont pay down all the debt until then at least a part of it will be refinanced instead.
    And finally it is not independent on income and or other circumstances. It is very much dependent on who your government decides to place the burden on. This you should know since I remember an execellent article here showing that in past years that burden overwhelmingly was placed on the lower income population.
