Greece, the first euro nation to seek rescue from the European Union and the IMF needs to address its imbalances and press ahead with measures to stimulate growth and lead the expansion according to International Monetary Fund's Managing Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn.

Following a meeting with Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou, Kahn stressed on a key issue when he addressed reporters in Athens, where he said the problem is growth, growth, growth where his view is clearly what the market is worried about, as he said that if Europe had growth no one would be discussing the debt crisis, which is simply the fact.

Kahn urged Greeks to support the government's plans and told the public that the IMF is here to help aimed at calming the public and labor unions which plan to protest and demonstrate against his appearance later before a parliamentary committee, where already members of the leftist Syriza and Communist Party will boycott.
