  • [01] Brussels Group's meetings to resume on Saturday

    ANA/MPA---The Brussels Group is expected to resume its meetings on Saturday. The president of the Council of Economic Advisors (SOE) Giorgos Chouliarakis, Finance ministry general secretary Nikos Theocharakis and Elena Panariti, advisor to the Greek Finance Minister, will participate from the Greek side. IMF's Rishi Goyal, European Commission's Declan Costello and ECB's Rasmus Rueffer will participate from the side of the partners, as representatives of the institutions. According to Finance ministry's officials, the contacts on a Brussels Group level, will continue in Brussels until April 23, a day before the informal Eurogroup meeting in Latvia. The same sources said that the Greek government will present its comprehensive and detailed proposals and timetables to the representatives of the institutions. Special emphasis will probably be given on tax issues. Government officials underlined that 'red lines' are fully maintained and recessionary measures - such as salary and pension cuts, mass layoffs, that do not help the economy recover - will not be made acceptable. Deliberations on a technical staff level started on Tuesday in Athens and are focused on fiscal and labour issues.
