The meeting between government Vice President and Finance Minister Evangelos Venizelos and the heads of the troika was concluded on Wednesday evening. The meeting lasted for about 2.5 hours and may be repeated on Thursday.
The talks focused mainly on government action in the sector of curbing expenditures and promoting privatisations and reforms (such as the unified salary scale in the public sector, mergers and abolitions of organisations, etc). In the revenues sector, the Finance ministry expects the full performance by the end of the year of the special tax measures, that will restrict the budget's deviations, while special weight is being placed on reducing tax evasion and receiving debts due to the state.
