担忧希腊违约,世界股市大跌 World Markets Roiled by New Greek Default Fears

03 October, 2011

由于担心希腊可能会很快违约停止偿还其去年所获的救助贷款,亚洲和欧洲股市星期一大幅下挫。香港恒生指数大跌4%以上,伦敦、巴黎和法兰克福的股市也都出现大幅下跌。在雅典星期天宣布希腊不是在今年就是在明年无法实现其减赤目标后,投资者纷纷抛售所持股票。

欧元区17个欧盟国家的最高级别财政官员星期一在卢森堡召开会议商讨希腊局势。但预计他们不会立即做出是否给希腊提供2010年达成的110亿美元救助计划的下一笔贷款的决定。只有获得这笔贷款希腊才能在本月晚些时候避免债务违约。

Asian and European stock markets fell sharply Monday because of new fears that Greece might soon default on its bailout loans from last year.Hong Kong's Hang Seng exchange dropped more than 4 percent, and the London, Paris and Frankfurt markets all plunged. Investors moved to sell stocks after the Athens government said Sunday it would not meet its deficit targets either this year or next, and the country's economy would continue to shrink in 2012.

Top financial officials from the 17 European nations that use the euro met in Luxembourg Monday to discuss Greece. But they were not immediately expected to decide whether to give the country a new $11 billion segment from its 2010 bailout so it has enough money to avoid a default later this month.
