De Santis focused his remarks on the impossibility of a Grexit and his belief that a deal with international lenders, the IMF, the ECB and the EU can be reached. De Santis said:
Greece has been lent in the region of €240 billion so far and is in a technical bankruptcy or let’s call it a ‘controlled bankruptcy’ where lenders need to keep flowing funds into Greece while giving it more time to get its house in order and agree a payment schedule that allows Greece to manage its internal politics and funding needs. The world does not want a Grexit and neither do the Greeks.”
On the upcoming UK referendum on the EU, Nicolas De Santis said that via its BRAND EU programme, Gold Mercury International will do everything possible to change the negative image of the EU in the UK.
“So far we have been successful with BRAND EU in creating a communications base to build a campaign from. Brexit is a possibility as the issue will be put to the vote of the public. The biggest issue is that in the UK we have a very Eurosceptic media which will stop at nothing to sell papers and influence people in a negative way towards Europe. Hopefully the British public will be able to make their own mind up, do their own research, otherwise, we could be sleepwalking out of the EU and into oblivion. We will do the impossible to avoid it”.
