@EU_Commission The European Commission published the second quarterly report of the Task Force for #Greece. It was formed to help Greece to carry out necessary reforms and consists of representatives of the EC and the member states. The Task Force has started its work last September. The document contains really impressive facts. For example, Greece has improved its absorption of EU funds, reaching 35% (above EU average for this point in the programming period). Already €946m was collected in tax arrears compared to initial target of €400m. Wait for a detailed analysis of the report tomorrow on this site.

Ralitsa Kovacheva#Greece @EU_Commission I`m slightly worried- French experts are guiding Greece how to reform the public administration. I believe Germans are the right people.

Ralitsa Kovacheva#Greece @EU_Commission I was right: Germany has started providing technical assistance for administrative reform at decentralised, local and regional levels, the next page of the report says.

Ralitsa Kovacheva#Greece @EU_Commission Something that really surprised me: Bulgarian experts help the Greeks in tax administration and are ready to help in the public financial management.

Ralitsa Kovacheva#Greece @EU_Commission Not surprisingly, mostly German and French experts are giving techical assistance in the crusial areas as public admidistration reform, tax administration, judicial reform. Financial sector and hospital management are entrusted to the Gremans.

#euco #Greece Boyko #Borissov, PM of #Bulgaria: We have been wasting hours and money for one and the same thing for years. We all have problems but no time is left for us because the agenda goes into the night on Greece. I'm firmly against any extensions and compromises. I regret that so much time will be spent today as well in the same direction
