Greece sends revised reforms list to creditors for approval

Text size Aa Aa

The Greek government has sent its international creditors a list of the reforms it wants to enact, and has promised to produce a small budget surplus this year.

The list had been demanded as proof of good intention and will be discussed before approval by the so-called Brussels Group, and then validated by European finance ministers before Greece is given
more aid.

Athens previously submitted a list of seven reforms that failed to win approval, but the government has already said it will not contain any new “recessionary” measures like cuts.

Other policies include measures to improve investor sentiment,
boost tax revenues, and judicial reform. The government is also 
expected to address some form of pension reform.
