Mandate of EU’s task force extended until June 2015

The mandate of the European Commission’s task force for Greece has been extended until June 2015, the EU’s chief executive Jean-Claude Juncker said on Wednesday.

“Upon a proposal by President Jean-Claude Juncker, the College has decided to prolong the mandate of the Task Force for Greece (DG ECFIN) until 30 June 2015,” Juncker said in a statement.

The Task Force was created in October 2011 to help Greece implement its challenging reform agenda.
