The ongoing negotiations with creditors is set to continue in Washington, where the Greek “troika” of Finance Minister Gikas Hardouvelis, Central Bank governor Yannis Stournaras and PM consultant Stavros Papastavrou will meet with the IMF.
While in the American capital, the Greek negotiating team is scheduled to meet with IMF chief Christine Lagarde and the head of European affairs Poul Thomsen. The main goal will be to present recent developments and set the parameters of the Greek plan to conclude the bailout program by the end of 2014.
On Tuesday evening the Prime Minister Antonis Samaras visited the central bank governor and former Finance Minister and discussed, amongst others, the problems that the Greek economy will face after the end of the bailout program. The main concern is to secure access to funding, in line with the ECB.
