Greek proposals: Ingredients for a deal?

10.07.2015 - Philippe Waechter

Markets analysis by Philippe Waechter, chief economist.

"The program, which has been presented by Alexis Tsipras to the troika, reflects the will to catch an agreement as soon as next Sunday during the meeting of the European Chiefs of government. Measures are expected to be approved in order to keep Greece in the Euro Area. Its aim is to get EUR 50bn on three years in order to repay Greek’s debt.

 

All the proposals that have been made by the Prime Minister are close to those on which the troika agreed on before the referendum.
The expected profile for the Greek public finance is to converge to a primary budget surplus of 3.5% of GDP in 2018. This surplus will be less than 1% this year. It will then not feed the debt anymore."
