EU says slowing Greek reforms threaten agreed fiscal targets

June 5, 2019

BRUSSELS (Reuters) – Greece has made reasonable progress since close supervision of lenders ended in August 2018, but its reform efforts have slowed in recent months, posing risks to fiscal targets agreed with euro zone lenders, the European Commission said on Wednesday.

“Reform implementation in Greece has slowed in recent months, and the consistency of some measures with commitments given to European partners is not assured and may pose risks to agreed fiscal targets,” the Commission said.
