"Citizens will soon feel the difference," government spokesman Dimitris Tzanakopoulos said on Monday in an interview with Real FM.

"We are entering a new phase for the Greek economy and Greek society in general," he underlined.

"Following the recovery of the country's economic sovereignty, what is now being monitored by the European institutions is not the means to achieve the goals, but the objectives themselves. If the Greek economy will be able to achieve the budget surpluses agreed for debt sustainability," he noted.

All figures show that the fiscal adjustment cycle was closed, Tzanakopoulos said, adding that no new measures are necessary. On the contrary, he stressed a fiscal room of 750 million euros will be created as of 2019 that can be used for social policies.
