Greece needs to be more specific over the planned pension reforms and the additional fiscal measures to be taken, Eurogroup head Jeroen Dijsselbloem on Tuesday said in a letter to the Dutch parliament.

Regarding the February 11 Eurogroup, he said that the course of the first program review will be discussed. “More clarity is needed on the planned pension reforms and the additional fiscal measures to be taken by the Greek government. The institutions continue the negotiations with the Greek authorities on the measures. After the successful completion of the first review, a disbursement to Greece is possible,” he added.
