Moscovici: Greece has completed 99 pct of the prior actions

Greece has made significant progress and completed 99 pct of the prior actions in the Greek programme, European Commissioner for Economic and Financial Affairs Pierre Moscovici said on Monday, in a statement as he arrived for a Eurogroup meeting in Brussels.

According to the Commissioner, the completion of the third review of the Greek programme was “very near” and the Eurogroup must send a signal that, during the next six months, everything possible will be done so that Greece will successfully complete the programme and enter a new period of prosperity.

In that time, he added, there must be an agreement on the post-programme surveillance for Greece and the measures that will be taken to reduce the Greek debt burden.
