The central bank in Greece, officially known as the Bank of Greece, began operations on May 14, 1928. In 2001, Greece became part of the Eurozone, which now consists of 17 nations and recognizes the monetary policies of the European Central Bank. “Greece initially failed to meet the economic requirements but was admitted in January 2001 after overhauling its economy” ("euro (currency unit)," 2011).
