  • [01] Gov't: Talks with 'troika' successfully ended

    (ANA-MPA) -- The Greek government has successfully concluded a round of negotiations with EC-ECB-IMF "troika" officials, the finance ministry announced on Friday.

    In a statement released in the afternoon, the ministry said details of the mid-term plan would be discussed during the coming days, and were subject to Cabinet approval.

    "Talks between the Greek government and the representatives of the European Commission, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund were concluded today in a positive manner," the statement said, adding that talks covered a review of progress of the Economic Policy Programme so far, a mid-term Fiscal Policy Framework, additional interventions necessary to achieve a fiscal deficit target for 2011, privatisations and state property management and structural reforms.

    The ministry noted that the Greek government has already announced specific decisions over the last few weeks, which confirmed its "volition to adhere to this course". (ANA-MPA)
