Eurozone ministers to decide on Greece bailoutEurozone Finance Chiefs are gathering in Brussels for a meeting that could decide whether new Greek proposals are sufficient to secure a third bailout and prevent a possible eurozone exit. Greece’s Parliament overnight backed Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras’s new package. But he faced anger from some in his own party for proposing measures that were rejected in a referendum last Sunday. Some creditors gave an initially positive reaction to the plans but a bailout agreement is far from certain. The creditors – the European Commission, European Central Bank and International Monetary Fund – have sent a first joint assessment to the Eurozone Ministers. Greece is asking creditors for 59.47 billion dollars to cover Greece’s debts until 2018, but the amount of the new bailout could reach 74 billion euros, as Greece is seeking a restructuring of its massive debt, which it says is unsustainable.

The Greek government has submitted economic reform proposals to try to secure a further bailout from its creditors. Eurozone officials say, head of the 19-member Eurozone group of finance ministers confirmed that they received the plan last night just two hours before a midnight deadline. They will now study it ahead of EU meetings at the weekend. Greek media say, the measures include tax hikes, pension reforms, privatisation and spending cuts. Greece needs a third bailout to avoid a default and a possible Euro exit. Today, the Greek parliament will vote on Prime Minister’s proposals. The plan will be then considered by Eurozone finance ministers tomorrow and by EU leaders at a summit in Brussels a day after tomorrow.
