  • [01] IMF, EU arrival in Athens postponed

    The starting of scheduled consultations between the Greek government and the European Commission, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund has been postponed for a few days due to difficulties in international airspace and the cancellation of flights, according to an announcement issued by the Finance ministry on Sunday.

    The announcement added that "the consultations concern the three-year economic policies programme that will be based on Ecofin's conclusions in February and which can be supported with economic aid from the member-states of the Eurozone and the IMF in the event that the Greek authorities decide to request the activation of the mechanism."

    Wednesday April 21 is the new scheduled day for the starting of the consultations, provided that the conditions permit this, the announcement concluded.
