The Ministry of Health has issued a ministerial decision that will effectively reduce expenses for EOPYY diagnostics, as required by the creditors, in order to collect the 1-billion-euro tranche.

As explained by the EU’s Deputy Chief Spokeswoman Mina Andreeva, the Greek government has completed milestones in the second package of agreed-upon prior actions.

The board of the European Stability Mechanism (ESM) is now expected to convene by Friday in order to formally approve the disbursement of the tranche.
