Following its meeting on Thursday, the EuroWorking Group (EWG) stressed the need for the negotiations between Greek government and the Institutions to intensify on labor issues, without specifying when the Institutions will return to Athens for the second review to be concluded. Regarding all the other issues, the EWG ascertained that there is sufficient convergence.

The aim is to reach a staff level agreement until the Eurogroup meeting on April 7th in Malta and to conclude the second bailout program review in the next Eurogroup meeting scheduled for May 22nd.
