Government officials were on Monday to begin talks with technical teams representing the country's international creditors in Athens ahead of the second review of Greece's third bailout.

The mission chiefs are due in Athens later in the week with European officials expected on Wednesday and the International Monetary Fund's envoy due to join them on Friday.

There are a total of 33 prior actions on the agenda for the second review. They include introducing more flexibility to the labor sector and liberalizing the energy market.
