Despite the negative economic ramifications of the war in Ukraine, the Greek economy is expected to show a strong growth rate of 3.5% this year, according to the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

In 2023, as the Fund points out, the growth rate of the Greek economy is estimated to slow to 2.6%.

The IMF also foresees inflation of about 6.1% this year due to high energy prices.
