Greek Money 'Boosts Bulgarian, Romanian Banks'
Capital flight from Greek banks last year has boosted deposits in Bulgaria and Romania, English-language Kathimerini says.
Deposits in Bulgaria rose 10% last year, while in its neighbor Romania the value was 8%.
Greece, on the other hand, saw a 23% slump over the same period.
"Quite a few self-employed professionals and others transferred their savings to banks in the neighboring states too," the daily adds.
Recently, the head of a social insurance fund for the self-employed sparked controversy with his comments that whoever is unable to pay their contributions and bear taxation in the country should move to Bulgaria.
