Economy Min Papadimitriou: Review will soon be concluded as there are not many open issues

The Greek programme review will soon be concluded as there are not many open issues, Economy and Development Minister Dimitris Papadimitriou on Wednesday said in an interview with Naftemporiki newspaper.

Asked on the dangers of the delay, he said “I have founded reasons to believe that the programme review will be concluded without repercussions on the country.”

He estimated that the unstable political climate will positively affect Greece since it puts pressure on EU to ensure the internal consistency of operation and existence.

The Minister of Economy and Development describes the goal for 2.7 pct growth this year as ambitious, but not impossible and presents the main lines for the country’s return to growth.
