EWG meets to approve 7.5 bln euro tranche to Greece


A Euro Working Group (EWG) meeting on Monday could give the green light for the disbursement of a 7.5-billion-euro bailout tranche to Greece.

The decision will be made on the basis of a compliance report compiled by the nation’s creditors over the weekend.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, European officials told Kathimerini that the report is generally positive. However, they added that a number of unresolved issues – mainly with regards to privatizations – could still delay the loan payment.
