Eurogroup chief Jeroen Dijsselbloem has noted progress in ongoing talks between Greece and creditors, adding that work will continue over the Easter break before bailout monitors return to Athens on April 2.

“The talks between the Greek government and the institutions have been productive since the mission started after the last Eurogroup,” the Dutch finance minister said in a written statement.

“Significant progress has been made on outstanding issues as income tax and pension reforms. Work is ongoing and it will continue over the Easter break,” he said.

“The mission chiefs will return to Athens on April 2 to resume the discussions with a view to conclude them as soon as possible.”
