Gov’t, troika to discuss plan to help indebted households

A proposed plan aimed at easing the burden faced by heavily indebted Greek households was to be discussed on Friday by senior officials of the Finance and Development Ministries and troika mission chiefs as well representatives of the Bank of Greece and of commercial banks.

Troika officials have reportedly extended their visit to Athens until the end of next week in a bid to tackle several unresolved issues including the streamlining of the civil service, efforts to improve tax collection as well as a payment plan for companies and individuals with social security debts and a program giving bank customers longer to repay their loans.
