Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I don't know what "EU aid" includes but Greece received a net ~1.3% of GDP from the EU budget in 2009, (half of what it received in 2008 btw) and that's where it still is if I'm not mistaken...

Export of goods is booming, relatively speaking (which means returning to pre-2008 levels) and import of goods is declining. That's the only good news there is, but this year's petroleum cost increases alone are larger than the decline of the non-oil trade deficit
