Eurogroup Head Dijsselbloem Says That Great Deal Still Needs To Be Done

Eurogroup President Jeroen Dijsselbloem tried to explain everyday people about economic achievements at state budget level are difficult, at a conference on Europe at Berlin's Hertie School of Governance.
 According to him, trying to tell a Greek who is struggling to survive that Greece now has a primary surplus, is something that for Eurogroup constitutes a significant indicator. He shared that it is the same as telling a Spaniard who has lost his job that there is a small drop in unemployment in his country, or to an Irish whose house lost a quarter of its value that real estate prices have registered a slight increase. He shared that macroeconomic data is improving, but it is clear that a great job still needs to be done. Dijsselbloem has been head of the Eurogroup since January 2013 and is also minister for Finance of the Netherlands.
