The Minister of Finances Euclid Tsakalotos and his financial staff will return to Brussels for the Eurogroup on Monday, where he will present a list of 48 prior actions that the government will aim to implement by the 15th of October, in order to collect 2 billion euros in aid.
This list of actions, which has been agreed upon with Greece’s creditors and partners, mostly includes outstanding measures from August and September. As such it includes interventions in pensions, the privatization of regional airports and providing a solution for ‘red loans’, among others.
Given that the actions must come into effect by mid October and the coalition government is expected to receive a vote of confidence at midnight on Wednesday, discussion on the relevant legislative bills will begin immediately. A second of list actions, which will unlock a further 1 billion euros in aid, will follow soon after.
