Troika review to carry over into January, Brussels confirms

The European Commission confirmed late on Saturday that there will be no conclusion of the latest troika review of the Greek adjustment program this month.

Simon O'Connor, a spokesperson for economic and monetary affairs, said in a brief statement that although some troika inspectors were due to return to Athens next week, negotiations would not have a chance of concluding until January at the earliest.

“Technical discussions are expected to continue in Athens next week,” he said.

“We expect a full negotiating team to return to Athens in January, after the authorities have made further progress in implementation, with the objective of reaching a staff level agreement.”
