Greece Auto market in Q1 2016

Greece Auto market in Q1 2016 hit by fall on domestic consumption’s. The last years recovery was broken with a double-digit drop. Nissan kept the leadership among brands and Toyota Yaris was the best model.

Economic Outlook

Greece’s crisis-hit economy reentered recession in the second half of last year and prospects of a swift recovery appear elusive. Negotiations over the country’s bailout progress continue to delay a boost to government finances and much-needed debt relief negotiations, which are key to shoring up confidence in the battered economy.

Although EU and IMF inspectors returned to Greece in March, talks over how to plug a fiscal hole by 2018 have been stalled. Pension reform remains a key obstacle and the government, which is facing an austerity-weary public and a slim three-seat majority parliament, is trying to avoid cutting pensions for the twelfth time since 2010
