The spokesman for European Economic Affairs Commissioner Olli Rehn Mr. Simon O’Connor said that troika officials do not have any intention of returning to Athens before the December 9 Eurogroup. The Greek side is now aiming to reach an agreement with the troika in the days after the meeting of eurozone finance ministers. There are several key issues such as the lifting of a moratorium on home foreclosures, voting a new property tax through Parliament, agreeing on measures to cover next year’s fiscal gap, removing restrictions on mass dismissals and finalizing a plan for the future of Hellenic Defense Systems (EAS).

According to press reports, Greece is hoping to make substantial progress in its efforts to conclude the latest review of its adjustment program in time for the Eurogroup meeting due to take place on December 18 and the EU leaders’ summit two days later.
