Greece is preparing two more measures to ease restrictions for Capital controls imposed in the country since end of June 2015. One of the measures will be the raising of monthly withdrawal cap and other will affect opening of new accounts at the banks.
According to media reports on Friday, the withdrawal limit will increase to 2.300 euros per month, from 1.800 euros since June 2015.
At the same time, the new measures see also the total liberation of restrictions on bank accounts. Every citizen will be able to open a new account at a bank, independently of whether he has already an account at this bank or not.
The new measures are reportedly awaiting for the signature of finance minister Euclid Tsakalotos. They will go into effect once the decision is being published in the official government gazette.
Sources form the banking sector told media that such moves signal the confidence increase in Greek economy. They estimate that deposits will increase and money will return to the banks once more capital controls restrictions are been lifted.
