In an upbeat comment about the overall economic prospects of the euro area, in a doorstep statement as he arrived for a Eurogroup meeting in Brussels on Monday, Eurogroup President Jeroen Djisselbloem noted that there had been “good news and bad news” during a year that was ending with signs that economic recovery was growing stronger in all countries except for one.

“The bad news is that we had to spend a lot of time on Greece but that programme is also back on track,” he added, noting that on the economic front there were “reasons for some optimism” even though there were a lot of other issues in Europe.
