Greek aid program ‘on track,’ Dijsselbloem says

Greece’s aid program is “on track,” Eurogroup chief Jeroen Dijsselbloem said during a meeting of eurozone finance ministers in Brussels on Monday.

Dijsselbloem, who is also Dutch finance minister, said the next tranche of aid worth 2.8 billion euros will be approved by the euro working group on February 21 after Athens has fulfilled the so-called “prior actions.”

“Today we were informed that Greece is in the process of implementing the February milestones agreed with the troika… including the setting of three-year expenditure ceilings for government subsectors,” he said.
