A top Eurozone official on Wednesday expressed the hope that Greek authorities and representatives of the institutions could reach an agreement by Monday, November 9 — when a scheduled Eurogroup meeting in Brussels will take place — to disburse the sub-installment of 2 billion euros to Greece.
“I hope that by Monday an agreement will be reached on the implementation of prior actions included in the first package of measures,” the official said here. Speaking to reporters, the official said that Greek authorities and the institutions were behind schedule on the implementation of the first package of reforms, but noted that “there is no reason for concern; we just have to speed up.” He noted that negotiations will focus next on agreeing on the reforms to be included in the second package of prior actions, which are linked with the sub-installment of 1 billion euros.
