Barroso Praises Greece for Economic Reform Program
Thursday, 01 January 1970
Greece is restoring confidence in its economic reform program, European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso said on Thursday, quoted by Reuters.
"Greece is making progress in terms of recovering the confidence needed for the country to go back to growth," he told reporters after a meeting of European conservative leaders.
"I hope they will be successful and we are supporting them," he said when asked about the government's shutdown of national broadcaster ERT.
Greece's ruling party leaders signaled moves towards a compromise on the restart of state TV broadcasts and said they would resolve a political standoff by Thursday.
