Eyes on the target

Four years after the country signed the first bailout agreement with its international lenders, the coalition government finally appears to have hatched a plan to end the troika’s supervision of the Greek economy and to steer the nation into the post-memorandum era.

Of course putting all that behind us will be no easy task. Underperforming ministers in the conservative-led administration must finally make good on the country’s commitments to its foreign lenders.

Meanwhile, the Greek Parliament will have to pass key legislation – this time not regarding further cuts but reforms.

We must not lose sight of the fact that the country is being presented with the prospect of a new era.

However, the path to economic stability requires a great deal of political determination and cool-headedness.

There is no place for opportunistic scaremongering and political blustering, particularly from government officials.
