A new “round” of anxiety regarding the future of the negotiations starts as of Sunday, since the creditors’ representatives are departing from Athens without any agreement on the three basic issues of the pension reform plan, security funds and “red loans”. Therefore, the representatives will have to renew their meeting with Greece in order to secure an agreement.
Labor Minister George Katrougalos said after a meeting between Greece’s economic staff and the representatives of the institutions earlier on Sunday that: “the heads of the institutions will come to Athens, April 2 and a new round of negotiations will start, April 4.
The aim of the government is to have the negotiations concluded by April 11, according to Katrougalos, when the next Euro Working Group (EWG) will take place.
However, both sides agreed to keep the national pension at 384 euros and not proceed with further cuts on primary pensions.
