The leadership of the government’s economic affairs team, including Greek Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos, government Vice-President Yiannis Dragasakis and Alternate Finance Minister George Chouliarakis, on Wednesday met with the new head of the European Commission’s Structural Reform Support Service (SRSS) Maarten Verwey at the finance ministry.
The meeting was also attended by the general secretary for government coordination Dimitris Papagiannakos, standing in for Minister of State Alekos Flambouraris.
According to a finance ministry announcement, the meeting was held in the context of cooperation for the provision of technical assistance to Greece, both now and in the long term.
Verwey, who succeeded the head of the former EU Task Force for Greece Horst Reichenbach, had a series of meetings with members of the government on Wednesday in order to determine the type of technical assistance that Greece’s public administration will need in the coming months.
They included meetings with Labor Minister George Katrougalos, Environment and Energy Minister Panos Skourletis, Alternate Minister for Migration Yiannis Mouzalas and Alternate Minister for Administrative Reform Christoforos Vernardakis.
