The negotiations between the Greek government and the representatives of the institutions resumed on Tuesday, with a focus on the privatization super fund and labor issues.
Tuesday’s meetings will see the participation of the Ministers of Finance Euclid Tsakalotos, Economy Dimitris Papadimitriou and Energy Giorgos Stathakis.
Additionally, the agenda will include fiscal figures for 2017-2018, the medium-term program, the primary surplus targets, the social solidarity income, the extrajudicial settlement of non-performing loans, privatizations, the liberalization of certain professions and boosting entrepreneurship among others.
A staff level agreement is expected by the Euro Working Group scheduled for 28 November, so that the Eurogroup on 5 December may approve the medium-term measures for the debt. A discussion on the participation of the IMF in the Greek program will then follow.
