Remittances sent to Greece by Greeks living and working abroad increased to 908 million euros in 2009 from 891 million euros in 2008, according to Eurostat.

Roughly 125 million euros came from Greeks living and working in other EU member-states, while 783 million were sent by Greeks living in third countries, whereas in 2008, approximately 127 million euros came from EU member-states and 764 million euros from third countries.

In general, workers’ remittances in the EU namely, money sent by migrants to their country of origin, fell 7 pct in 2009 to 30.2 billion euros from 32.6 billion euros in 2008. The decline is the result of the economic crisis which has interrupted the upward trend recorded in recent years, Eurostat said.
