A teleconference conference between Greek Finance Minister Gikas Hardouvelis and representatives of Greece’s creditors, collectively known as the troika, was scheduled to take place on Thursday afternoon, Kathimerini understands.

The meeting’s agenda was expected to focus on proposals forwarded to the troika by the Greek government late on Wednesday.
