Hollande Urges French Investment in Greece While in Athens

President Francois Hollande called for investment in Greece, seeking to promote growth in the first visit of a French leader to Athens since the euro debt crisis began there more than three years ago.

Hollande, a Socialist who won last May’s election emphasizing growth over austerity, repeated his commitment to keeping Greece in the 17-nation euro area and pressed Prime Minister Antonis Samaras to forge ahead with the revamp of his nation’s economy.
