Moscovici: Greece under fiscal supervision until it pays 75% of its loans

The Commissioner’s response effectively shatters the Greek government’s narrative that the country is in a stage of exiting the economic crisis and returning to normalcy. Responding to a written question submitted by SYRIZA MEP Nikos Chountis on the procedures of the supervision mechanism (timing of next evaluation of Greek economy and the institutional bodies used).
