In the following days, Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos and alternate Finance Minister George Chouliarakis will meet with the heads of the International Monetary Fund and of European institutions, in Washington, within the scope of the IMF Spring Summit. More specifically, on Friday, the Greek Ministers will meet with the European Commissioner for Economic and Financial Affairs, the Eurogroup President, the French Finance Minister and the President of the European Central Bank. On Saturday, they will meet with Christine Lagarde, who has expressed her support to the Greek effort, and has clarified that the IMF no longer asks for further expenditure cuts.

Greece and its creditors seem to have come one step closer to reaching an agreement on a debt relief, Eurogroup President Mário Centeno stated. On his part, European Commissioner for Economic and Financial Affairs Pierre Moscovici said that Greece’s bailout program will not be prolonged.
