‘Great news’ that Eurogroup is looking at closing of Greek programme, Centeno says

Eurozone finance ministers will be looking at closing the Greek programme when they meet in Brussels on Monday, Eurogroup President Mario Centeno told reporters in a brief doorstep statement as he arrived for the meeting, noting that this was “great news”.

“The Greek authorities have been doing a great job in implementing a very ambitious reform plan and today we will [be briefed by] the institutions. It has been a quite long period of programmes, already eight years, so we are looking at the closing of this programme, which is certainly great news,” he said.
