Ash delays EU/IMF mission to Greece until Wednesday

ATHENS, April 18 (BestGrowthStock) – A mission of European officials
and the International Monetary Fund to Greece has been delayed
by the volcanic ash cloud and will arrive on April 21 if
possible, Greece’s Finance Ministry said on Sunday.

Officials from the European Commission, the European Central
Bank and the International Monetary Fund had been scheduled to
arrive in Athens on Monday to discuss a 3-year policy programme
that investors are increasingly convinced will lead the
debt-stricken country to ask for an emergency bailout.

“The new scheduled day for the start of consultations is
Wednesday, April 21, if conditions allow,” the ministry said in
a statement.
