EU Commission Extends Dedicated Post-Programme Framework for Greece
Thursday, 21 February 2019
The European Commission has adopted a decision to extend the enhanced surveillance framework for Greece by six months, as provided for under Regulation (EU) No 472/2013 (part of the so-called "two-pack").
This extension is part of the normal and expected process that serves to ensure continued support for the completion, delivery and implementation of reforms agreed under Greece's stability support programme, in line with the commitments made by the Greek authorities.
The implementation of these reforms is crucial to further strengthening Greece's economic recovery following the successful conclusion of the European Stability Mechanism (ESM) stability support programme in August 2018.
