Greek Alternate Finance Minister George Chouliarakis is presenting the package of the 3.6 bn euro measures to the EuroWorking Group meeting on Thursday, so that the Institutions return to Athens for the final details of the staff level agreement. The EuroWorking Group will extensively discuss the new measures to be implemented from 2019 onward.
The Greek government has made it clear that it will pass the new measures proposed by the creditors only if the debt issue is settled, the restructuring of which is a prerequisite for the IMF’s participation in Greece’s bailout program. Greek government officials and the creditors continue their talks to sign a staff level agreement until the informal Eurogroup meeting in April. According to information, Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos had a telephone conversation with the Institutions’ heads on Wednesday, in an attempt to bridge the last differences.
