Brussels, 17 June 2010
Press statement by the European Commission, European Central Bank and International Monetary Fund, on the Interim Review Mission to Greece, 14-17 June, 2010
Staff teams from the European Commission, the European Central Bank, and the International Monetary Fund visited Athens during June 14-17 to follow up on recent developments and implementation of policies under the economic program for Greece.
While the mission did not undertake a comprehensive review at this time, its discussions suggest that the program is on track and that policies are being implemented as agreed:
Next steps. The three teams will return to Athens toward the end of July to conduct a comprehensive review under the program, including an assessment of progress relative to quantitative targets and benchmarks for end-June. This will be the first formal review under the program. Satisfactory completion of this review would enable Greece to make the second drawing under the program.
