Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The govern­ment is to shift its at­ten­tion to the next set of re­forms that it needs to leg­is­late to un­lock fur­ther res­cue fund­ing this week, with a visit by Euro­pean Eco­nomic and Mon­e­tary Af­fairs Com­mis­sioner Pierre Moscovici to­day ex­pected to un­der­line the ex­pec­ta­tions of Greece’s cred­i­tors.

Moscovici is to meet with Prime Min­is­ter Alexis Tsipras, Fi­nance Min­is­ter Eu­clid Tsakalo­tos, Econ­omy Min­is­ter Gior­gos Stathakis and La­bor Min­is­ter Gior­gos Ka­trouga­los to as­sess Greece’s progress in pre­par­ing for la­bor re­forms, the fur­ther over­haul of the non-per­form­ing loans mar­ket and fis­cal belt-tight­en­ing. The next tranche of bailout fund­ing is worth 2.8 bil­lion eu­ros.

In an in­ter­view with MNI news agency ahead of his visit to Athens, Moscovici said talks “will have to be swift, ir­re­spec­tive of the sit­u­a­tion in Bri­tain,” re­fer­ring to the fall­out of the Bri­tish EU ref­er­en­dum re­sult.
