Eurogroup main results


Regular format


The institutions informed the Eurogroup on progress made by the Greek authorities on the implementation of the reform commitments specified in the Eurogroup statement of 22 June 2018, including its annex, that were pending at the time of the previous Eurogroup meeting. 

The Eurogroup welcomed the adoption of a budget for 2019 which is projected to ensure the achievement of the primary surplus target of 3,5% of GDP, and the completion of important structural reforms including key privatisation transactions.

Ministers also welcomed the assessment by the European institutions that Greece has taken the necessary actions to achieve all specific reform commitments for end-2018 and that the necessary conditions are in place to confirm the release of the first tranche of policy-contingent debt measures, subject to completion of national procedures.
