  • [01] EU-IMF team's meetings in Athens

    -P/A team of the European Commission, European Central Bank (ECB) and International Monetary Fund (IMF) met with the head of the finance ministry's Council of Economic Experts George Zanias on Tuesday.

    The team, which arrived in Athens on Monday evening to review the course of implementation of Greece's Stability and Growth Program, met shortly after their arrival with Bank of Greece officials, while they will also meet with employment ministry officials during visit, which runs through Thursday.

    The team will also examine the additional measures that have been announced by Prime Minister George Papandreou, and will prospectively recommend the adoption of more measures if deemed necessary for attaining the target of reducing the country's fiscal deficit by 4 percentage points of GDP by the end of the year.

    The College of Commissioners (European Commission plenary) is due to convene on March 9 to discuss the Greek economy, while on March 15 the results so far of the measures already taken by the Greek government will be examined.

    [02] LAOS tables question on German war reparations

    Popular Orthodox Rally (LAOS) leader George Karatzaferis on Tuesday tabled a current question in parliament calling on the government to demand the payment of war reparations by Germany, which he said exceed 10 billion euros.

    In a question addressed to prime minister George Papandreou, Karatzaferis said that "at a time when the German government but also the German media are holding a reserved, and at times hostile, stance on the efforts of the Greek government for exiting the crisis, the issue of the payment of the German debts to our country remains open, given that all relevant efforts in the past proved hesitant and incomplete".

    The LAOS leader stressed "the adverse economic conjuncture at which Greece is", and asked the prime minister "how and when he intends to proceed to a more determined demand of the legally vested debts".
