Greece likely to receive next bailout payment: inspectors
ATHENS/FRANKFURT -- Greece should receive a vital lifeline next month in order to avoid bankruptcy, international lenders said Tuesday, buying time in a debt crisis that Europe's top central banker labeled “systemic.”
After a review of the country's finances, inspectors from the European Union, International Monetary Fund (IMF) and European Central Bank (ECB) said an 8-billion-euro loan tranche should be paid in early November. But they warned Greece had made only patchy progress in meeting the terms of a bailout agreed in May last year.
“The success of the program continues to depend on mobilizing adequate financing from private sector involvement and the official sector,” the troika said.
It said additional measures were likely to be needed to meet debt targets in 2013 and 2014 and a privatization drive and structural reforms were falling short. Decisive implementation of existing plans should allow next year's debt goals to be met, it said.
