Finance Minister Evangelos Venizelos on Thursday reiterated that "Greece must do everything in order to meet the obligations it has assumed internationally," referring to press speculation over whatever renegotiation with the EC-ECB-IMF "troika".
Press claims have pointed to efforts at rescheduling Memorandum targets, as well as a closely watched privatisations schedule.

In reference to privatisations and the continuing slide on the Athens Stock Exchange of state-controlled listed companies' shares, Venizelos said the projected appreciation of a company's shares will be included in any sell-off scheme for a listed company or organisation. He said state assets and share rights will come first, as the latter can be privatised via faster procedures.
