Economy Min: Agreement within the Next Days

"Deal exists" stated Economy Minister George Stathakis in an interview to the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera, clarifying that he foresees that "the deal will close within a few days" and a "Eurogroup to approve the financing will follow". At a question if there will be a third support programme, Stathakis said "It depends on the debt sustainability and the growth project for the next three to four years, the framework is not clear yet. The aim of the agreement we want rules out the need of a new rescue programme. Regarding the IMF, Stathakis said that "IMF's mission to Greece ends in March 2016. There is no reason to be extended. "We have tabled realistic and reasonable proposals. The key issues are the VAT reform and the reduction of the primary surplus target, we ask for 1 pct in 2015 which will gradually grow to 3 pct in 2018. Review of the labour market's, of the energy and the privatisation regulations and measures for the private debt" he added. The minister made clear that the main sectors on which the economic recovery will be based are maritime, tourism and knowledge. "Growth can go hand in hand with the social justice. In Greece we want to try it".
