The head of the Bank of Greece, George Provopoulos, receives a monthly net salary of 7,615 euro. This became clear after the Finance Minister Yiannis Stournaras announced the data in public in the National Assembly on the day of parliamentary control this week.

The deputy governor of the central Bank of Greece, Eleni Dendrinou-Louri, receives 8,148 euro a month. Her net salary is higher than that of her head because Louri does not pay contributions to the social insurance fund of the Bank of Greece. Her colleague, Yiannis Papadakis, receives 7,373 euro.

Members of the currency board of banks receive slightly lower salaries. They are in the range of 4,500 to just over 6,700 euro. The Ministry of Finance notes that the members of the Management Board of the Bank of Greece do not receive a salary for their position but an allowance to the non-taxable amount of 250 euro.

Public opinion in Greece is united around the idea that three years after the height of the crisis, today, the coming cuts continue to burden mainly people with lower incomes. At the same time, those with lifetime jobs and good incomes continue to contribute to the improvement of the situation of the country the least.

However, George Provopoulos was one of the first senior officials who announced before the mass cut of wages in Greece that he voluntarily forfeits 20% of his monthly salary in favour of the state budget.
