Second Round of Talks with Brussels Group Underway in Paris

A second round of talks between a Greek team of economic experts and the Brussels Group began on Sunday at noon. According to sources, Sunday's negotiations will focus mainly on labour issues.
The first round of negotiations on Saturday was described by government sources as "productive" and ended with a decision to convene the Eurogroup Working Group (EWF) next Wednesday, April 22.
The main aim of the meetings, they said, was to alleviate the differences between the Greek government and the institutions so that a green light can be given to financial aid for the country.
During Saturday's six-hour meeting, the discussion focused chiefly on fiscal and macroeconomic issues.
The talks between the two sides at the offices of Greece's OECD representation are expected to continue until next Tuesday, the day before the emergency EWG meeting is held. The Greek side is represented by the head of the team of economic experts George Houliarakis, the new general secretary for fiscal policy Nikolaos Theocharakis and the finance minister's advisor Elena Panariti.
