Troika officials in Athens to assess progress

EU and IMF inspectors are expected in Athens on Tuesday to evaluate Greece’s progress in meeting its fiscal targets as well as the proposals included in the midterm economic program, which is set to be voted in Parliament next week.

Troika officials are expected to meet with Evangelos Venizelos who replaced Giorgos Papaconstantinou as finance minister after a cabinet reshuffle last week.

The eurozone on Monday decided to hold back the latest tranche of a rescue loan, saying that Greek lawmakers would first have to approve a new package of austerity measures.
