The package of budget cuts Greece has to make to qualify for international rescue funds and keep it in the euro area will be completed by early September, a Greek finance ministry official said today.
Talks between representatives of Greece’s international creditors, the so-called troika, and the government agreed on a “good proportion” of measures, said the official, who declined to be identified because the talks are ongoing.
Work will continue on the package this week, the official said.
