Greek Economy Minister: 99% of Bailout Demands Completed

Greece’s economy minister said on Wednesday he was confident the latest debt deal struck with creditors will be completed without further significant hurdles as the country races to prevent another default.

“I think that 99 percent of what has been agreed has been practically completed… There are some extra things but I think that in the last few days we have reached more or less an agreement and everything will go through smoothly,” Giorgos Stathakis told CNBC at the OECD Forum in Paris.

“There are three points remaining, there is some concern on our behalf on the fiscal issues, in 2017. But I think there will be a solution,” Stathakis told CNBC. “Some issues are very sensitive, it is a very tight program until 2018 – it is frontloaded, that’s why the first assessment is that important on both sides so I think people are looking at small details lately.”
