Greece opens way for €8.3B aid after approving reform bill

|By:, SA News Editor

Greece's parliament has passed a controversial economic reform bill and paved the way for the government to receive an €8.3B tranche in international aid, which will allow it to pay €9.3B in debt that is due next month.

However, the vote has left the right-of-center government with just a majority of two after it expelled a rebellious legislator.

The FTSE/ASE 20 (GREK) is +0.3%.
