Vicky Pryce at a full house in London’s Hellenic Centre delivering her speech

Earlier tonight, at a full house in London’s Hellenic Centre, Vicky Pryce, Chief  Economic Adviser, CEBR, delivered from heart an excellent speech on what really to expect for Greece in the short and long term.

She was introduced by the Greek Ambassador Konstantinos Bikas who also did the closing remarks. Pryce is well known, not just for the provocative style in delivering speeches, but for her pragmatism and non-dogmatic views on economic word issues. An interesting Q&A followed with over fifteen questions on all subjects surrounding the current Greek situation. The speaker replied to all in the most appropriate way and looked optimist for the future, subject of course that certain outstanding issues take place.
