The negotiations between the Greek government and the institutions on the second bailout program resume, with the creditors calling for detailed timetables and a new list of privatizations.
According to a report in Ta Nea, the institutions have called for a new list of privatizations scheduled for 2017, while underlining that these must relate to the energy sectors – meaning the sale of the 17% of DEI and 65% of DEPA – as well as the Athens International Airport. Sources suggest that these tenders are to form the basis of the 2-billion-euro revenue target for 2017.
Meanwhile, the institutions are also expected to pressure the government on launching the new privatization ‘super fund’ by the end of the year, with a source adding that the management board and managing director should be appointed by the Eurogroup scheduled for 5 December.
