Without a decision to disburse one billion euros from the activation of debt measures ended the debate on Greece on Monday’s Eurogroup.
According to eurozone sources, the institutions have expressed confidence that the implementation of all that has been agreed on, will soon be completed so that the decision on the disbursement will be taken at the next Eurogroup on April 5, in Bucharest.
The most pending concerns are the arrangements for the “red loans”, however, a significant progress was noted at the meeting between institutions and the Greek authorities, and the latest details are expected in the coming days.
The issue of the repayment of government debt arrears was also brought to the table for which further data are expected from the Greek authorities.
During the press conference following the end of the meeting, Eurogroup chairman Mario Centeno, the ESM chief Klaus Regling and Economic Affairs Commissioner Pierre Moscovici talked about Greece’s important progress on implementing reforms.
