Christine Lagarde, head of the IMF, has insisted that Greece will not quit the eurozone.

In an interview with the Huffington Post this afternoon, Lagarde says:

This is not on the cards, and it is not being discussed.

Last week was a triggering point where there was a collective determination to listen, to build trust, and to do the best to stay together.

Lagarde also urged Greece’s new government to implement reforms, to tackle “vested interests, protected professions, rigidity in some markets”. Those measure can “unleash productivity” and lead to sustainable growth, she argued..

“I hope that the structural reforms that are so needed in the country can be implemented. There’s been a lot of talk about it, but now it’s time to get on with the work.”
