Greek finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos emerged from talks with the institutions at around 6 a.m. on Monday to announce that there had been an agreement between the various participants. The government has tried for many months to reach an agreement without going back on promises made when they were elected. The next step for the Greek government will be to complete the drafting of the relevant legislation so Parliament can approve the package of measures agreed between both parties. The measures have to do with pensions, personal income tax, privatizations, labor market reforms and public administration.

In the following months we will hear what the ins and outs of the measures will be although Skopelosnews got the impression that most of them will be taken in 2018 and later.
