Greece Crisis Hits Georgians Hard

Many investors remain optimistic that Greece can eventually strike a deal to avoid a messy exit from the Eurozone. Despite this, all over Athens people are in a general state of panic with queues at banks continuing since the weekend as people try to withdraw their money. The Greek government decided to shut banks down for a week following a decision by the European Central Bank not to extend emergency funding.

Georgian people living in Greece are unable to get their salaries and those who don’t have citizenship are afraid to leave the country.

“We are waiting for the referendum results and then we will decide whether to stay in the country or not. If Greece leaves the Eurozone, requirements towards foreigners will become stricter and we will be unable to work here,” said one Georgian.
