Greece May Get Next Tranche by Yr-end, Eurogroup President Says
Tuesday, 10 December 2013
The next bailout loan tranche to Greece could be disbursed within the current year, provided that the country meets the last prior action of the third assessment of its new programme, i.e. the restructuring of its defence industries, Eurogroup President Jeroen Dijsselbloem said, as quoted by the Athens News Agency-Macedonian Press Agency.
The fourth assessment, however, is most likely take place next year, according to Dijsselbloem.
"We are aware of the difficulties and know how sensitive the political situation in the country is," Dijsselbloem commented, but added that there are still some structural actions which should be taken.
