Reuters reports that Greece's finance ministry said that Greece has made an early repayment of debt worth 3.3 billion euros to the International Monetary Fund.
The move, the second early repayment of debt to the IMF since 2019, allows Athens to reduce its debt-servicing costs, because IMF loans carry higher interest than Greece would now pay on the market.
“It reduces interest rate and foreign exchange risk and refinancing risk for the next two years,” the ministry said in a statement. “It also improves key debt sustainability indicators.”
The country has received three international bailouts from the euro zone and the IMF worth 280 billion euros since 2010. It emerged from its latest bailout in August 2018 and has relied on the debt markets to cover its borrowing needs since.
