10:01:16 Soundbite (in ENGLISH) by Johannes Hahn: for the next few months I think there should and must be a strong focus on stimulating the private sector, the small and medium-sized enterprises. So we have provided everything. It is now up to the Greek government together with financial intermediates and banks and so on to set-up and to decide the relevant funds. The money is in principle available. 00:00:30
