Release Information

On January 1, 1999, the Euro was introduced as the new currency of the European Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) in which Greece participates as from 1/1/2001. The Bank of Greece is a member of the European System of Central Banks (ESCB). The ESCB, which conducts monetary policy for the entire EMU, engages in open market operations and offers standing facilities for which it determines the respective variable interest rates. Data relative to these interest rates are disseminated by the European Central Bank (ECB), and the respective metadata, which are common to all participants in EMU, can be accessed by clicking on (http://www.ecb.int).

Apart from ESCB policy rates, the Bank of Greece (BoG) disseminates data on the following interest rates:

  • Yields on Greek Government Securities (including the 12-month Treasury Bill Yield)
  • Bank deposit and lending rates.
