On Monday, Eurogroup decided that the tranche of 5.7 billion euros, within the scope of the third review, will be disbursed in the second half of March. Following the meeting of the Eurozone Finance Ministers, Eurogroup President Mário Centeno expressed his belief that Greece will meet its last obligations to successfully conclude the ESM program, as the country is now in the fourth and last review, and seems to be strongly committed to the implementation of the program and the continuation of the reforms.

Regarding the staff-level talks on the debt relief measures and the mechanism linking debt repayment with growth rate, Mr. Centeno stressed that there is progress, adding that in the informal meeting of April 27th, in Sofia, Eurogroup will discuss the debt relief measures.
