The European Commissioner for Economic and Financial Affairs, Taxation and Customs Pierre Moscovici will be visiting Athens on Monday. He will be received by Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and will later meet with the Ministers of Economy and Finance.
In recent statements the European official has supported debt relief for Greece and in an interview for the Sunday edition of the Ethnos newspaper, he underlined that it is the right time to begin talks on debt relief.

“The Greeks have done so many sacrifices in the last years and finally the country is ready to turn page. The success story we are writing together means the return to normality but a normality with sustainable public economic policy and a competitive economy that will be able to create the job positions that the Greeks need so much” he noted in his interview.
