Greece's growth rates give hope, Katainen says

"We will have a first discussion in the Eurogroup on Thursday, while decisions will be taken on December 8," EU Commissioner for Economic and Monetary Affairs Pierre Moscovici said when asked to comment on the next steps regarding Greece's exit from its adjustment programme.
As the French Commissioner stressed, talks with the Greek government continue in order to "evaluate the reform programme in Greece, which has made great efforts in recent years and should continue its reforms."
Moscovici said that he was aware there had been developments regarding Greece's demands presented by Prime Minister Antonis Samaras and which will be considered in the form of a package with the stated desire to maintain the integrity of the eurozone, help Greece reform and exit the programme in a coordinated way.
Moskovici reiterated his commitment to make his first official bilateral visit to Greece, which as he said, will take place before December 8.
Vice President for Jobs, Growth, Investment and Competitiveness Jyrki Katainen also expressed his intention to visit Greece, saying he was pleased by Greece's return to growth, "although we know the Greek citizen does not welcome it, because the situation presents many challenges."
