Achtsioglou reiterates government’s determination to conclude the review
The government wants the programme review to be concluded and is working hard to achieve that, Labour Minister Efi Achtsioglou on Friday (03/02/2017) said in statements to SKAI TV.
The Minister stressed that the IMF is to blame for the delay and not the Greek government. Greece has met 1/3 of the prior actions, it has agreed on another 1/3 of the prior actions and the rest 1/3 on labour, energy, fiscal issues needs to be agreed on.
She added that the IMF demand for legislating additional measures after the end of the programme is out of reason – financially or democratically. “When the economy outperforms, it is unreasonable to legislate measures for the period after the end of the programme,” Achtsioglou underlined.
