The EuroWorking Group that is meeting on Thursday will review the Greek budget in its final form, as well as the positive measures and the non-implementation of the pension cuts.

The European Commission and the Greek authorities have concluded their deliberations regarding the fiscal margin that Greece is expected to have in order to implement the positive measures, while the Commission is particularly interested in the type of measures that the Greek government has chosen to implement “as a priority”, so that they are of developmental and social nature. European sources involved in the procedure are optimistic that an agreement at Eurozone level will be finally reached.

It is reminded that next Monday’s Eurogroup (on 19.11) will discuss the issue of Greece only “if deemed necessary”, given that on November 21, the European Commission will officially announce its opinion on all the draft budgets of the EU member states.
