Greek finance minister sees progress on economic targets

LUXEMBOURG, Oct 19 (BestGrowthStock) – Markets are recognising
Greece’s progress in meeting the economic targets set for the
debt-burdened country, Finance Minister George Papaconstantinou
said on Tuesday.

“There is a widespread recognition that we are advancing
quite well to achieve the targets that have been set,” he told
reporters in Luxembourg, where he was attending a meeting of
European Union finance ministers.

“It is interesting to note that the markets are beginning to
respond to the efforts made,” he said, referring to the
conditions set for a financial lifeline from euro zone partners
and the IMF earlier this year.

Papaconstantinou pointed to Tuesday’s treasury bill auction,
which he said had achieved a very positive result.
