The Greek government's and peoples’ strong commitment for implementation of the economic adjustment program was reaffirmed by the country's new finance minister, Evangelos Venizelos, as he entered an informal meeting of the eurogroup in Luxembourg on Sunday afternoon.
As he headed into his first eurogroup meeting since assuming the finance ministry a few days earlier, Venizelos said: "We can achieve the targets thanks to the efforts of the people and to the cooperation and support of our partners".
The eurogroup is to discuss approval of the disbursement of a 12 billion euros 5th tranche of the 110 billion euro EU-IMF bailout loan to Greece, and aspects of a second aid program.
