If last Friday was the first step, then until August 20 Greece is faced with a marathon, which will have many necessary and critical stops.
The indicative graph of Morgan Stanley has “flooded” the social media, since it is reproduced by foreigners (mainly) journalists to show that the initial agreement at the extraordinary Eurogroup Friday not only does it not close the Greek issue, but opens it wide.
The critical meetings of the Greek government for the coming period are:
February 24: The Eurogroup decides on the list.
February 28: Ending of the existing program, while at the end of the month the national Parliaments have to ratify the decision of the Eurogroup.
March 5: The ECB’s decisions on monetary policy.
March 9: Meeting of the Eurogroup.
March 18: ECB Decision on the ELA of Greek banks.
March 27: Moody’s announces its evaluation.
April 1: ECB Decision on the ELA of Greek banks.
April 15: The decisions of the ECB’s monetary policy.
