EU finance ministers will discuss progress on the Greek bailout reforms at its two-day meeting which starts today. According to reports, Greece is struggling to keep up with bailout reforms demanded by creditors in exchange for continued loan payouts and there are indications that it may fall short of economic commitments it needs to meet for its next tranche of €2.8 billion of aid, which is due this month. The European Commission is cited as stating that the tranche will not be disbursed as Greece has implemented only 2 of the 15 political reforms required for the release of the funds. Meanwhile, Greece is hoping to start talks by the end of the year for more lenient debt repayment terms.
