On Monday, the technical teams embarked on the second assessment of Greece’s program, while the Institutions are expected in Athens in the next days for a new round of deliberations focusing on labor issues and the Superfund for public assets exploitation.

Within the scope of the EU Summit in Brussels, on Thursday and Friday, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has scheduled several meetings to discuss assessment and debt issues.

The implementation of measures to relieve debt is a prerequisite for Greek economy to regain trust, stability and access to markets, said European Commissioner for Economic and Financial Affairs, Pierre Moscovici, on Monday.

Following a meeting with Deputy Prime Minister Yannis Dragasakis and Bank of Greece Governor Yannis Stournaras, Greek Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos stated that he is confident about the debt restructuring. Stournaras predicted a 2.7% growth for the Greek economy in 2017, provided that the second assessment is completed soon.
