Representatives of Greece’s lenders continued their meetings in Athens on Monday, when they met Labor Minister Giorgos Katrougalos.

Declan Costello from the European Commission, Rasmus Rueffer of the European Central Bank, Nicola Giammarioli from the European Stability Mechanism and Delia Velculescu of the International Monetary Fund met Katrougalos at his office for talks that lasted just under two hours.

Ministry sources said the aim of the discussions was for the visiting officials and Katrougalos to acquaint themselves with each other. The talks were held at the minister’s suggestion, sources added.

The government said that the main issues the four officials would be discussing on Monday are related to the justice system and combatting corruption. Tax issues are also on the agenda for Monday’s talks.
