Labour Minister Katrougalos and the representatives of the institutions to discuss labour issues on Tuesday

Labour Minister Giorgos Katrougalos and the representatives of the institutions meet on Tuesday to discuss labour issues.

In statements to the Athens-Macedonian News Agency (ANA), Katrougalos expressed his optimism over a positive outcome of the negotiations. He underlined that the negotiations will be hard as the IMF is an “extreme player.” However, he estimated that the outcome will be positive since both sides are willing to come to an agreement.

Moreover, Katrougalos reiterated that he seeks the return of the country to the European social model, adding that the report of the Committee of Independent Experts strengthens the Greek positions because they aim at Greece’s reintegration to the European normality.
