    (ANA-MPA) -- Greeceās three-year economic adjustment programme is progressing as scheduled and measures are implemented as agreed, officials from the "troika" (European Commission, European Central Bank and International Monetary Fund) stated on Thursday.

    The representatives of the Commission, ECB and IMF said developments in fiscal policy were positive with public revenues moving as anticipated, while an austere control in spending was observed. Based on initial liquidity figures, by the end of May the budget deficit was lower compared with initial forecasts. They also said that pension reform has made significant progress with (ANA-MPA) agreement reached in several main parameters, exactly as envisaged in the memorandum. The officials said Greek authorities were making the necessary provisions to assess the contribution of pension reform in improving the medium-term viability of public finances. (ANA-MPA)
