  • [01] Talks between gov't and instutions on Thursday to focus on product and energy markets

    Talks between the government's economic team and the mission chiefs of the institutions concluded on Wednesday evening, with talks centering on the staffing of the new privatization fund and the out-of-court settlement of debts.

    According to government sources, there was considerable convergence on financial matters and the out-of-court settlement, while there was also progress on the issue of privatization fund. On Thursday, the two sides will discuss the product and energy markets.

    Concerning Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos' visit to Berlin on Thursday, ministry sources said there is no scheduled meeting with German counterpart Wolfgang Schaeuble and that he will not attend Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras' meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

    [02] Tsakalotos: Supporting pensioners is in line with bailout; Greece will explain its position

    The measures to support low-income pensioners announced by the government last week are within the framework of the bailout agreement signed with Greece's creditors, Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos told journalists on Wednesday.

    He was responding to questions about ESM's decision to put on hold the implementation of debt relief measures.

    "We will explain to anyone who asks us that the support for pensioners announced by the government is within the framework of the memorandum and we believe that when we provide the necessary explanations, they will understand," he said, adding these benefits will be voted tomorrow in parliament with a roll call vote.

    On Thursday, Tsakalotos and Labour Minister Efi Achtsioglou will visit Berlin where they will hold a joint press conference.
