Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena SpA Chairman Giuseppe Mussari said the banking industry is worried about the Greek budget crisis and called for politicians to find a solution as soon as possible.
“The Greek crisis should be resolved as soon as possible,” Mussari said in an interview on the sidelines of a conference in Rome. “Europe, not only the banking industry, needs to be concerned about it.”
Monte dei Paschi’s “small exposure” to Greece is 20 million euros ($26.4 million), Mussari said.
“There are no risks for Italy,” Mussari also said.
