The stock exchange in Athens is set to reopen next week after a closure of more than a month, amid tough bailout negotiations for the debt-stricken country.
Costas Botopoulos, the head of the Hellenic Capital Market Commission, told CNBC on Friday that the exchange would open on Monday August 3.
One possible caveat is that the Greek finance ministry needs to agree to the decision in writing. However, all relevant parties are working towards this, Botopoulos told CNBC.
The Greek government has begun talks with its international creditors in the hope of agreeing a third bailout for the country. This comes after a referendum in Greece on tough austerity reforms and a debt default on the money it owed the International Monetary Fund.
In addition to stock markets, Greek banks were closed for three weeks, but then reopened on July 20.
