Troika due back in Athens, with mixed agenda

 

As the government prepares for the return of envoys representing Greece’s troika of foreign lenders on Monday, a draft plan of the revised memorandum seen by Kathimerini indicates the potential need for new austerity measures if authorities fail to meet revenue targets and to plug a funding gap.

According to the draft document, unspecified new measures may have to be taken if authorities fail to collect adequate revenue from outstanding debts to the state and fail to plug a funding gap for this year of just over 1 billion euros, chiefly attributed to the debts of the country’s main healthcare provider, EOPYY.
