The Commission has today published the eleventh enhanced surveillance report for Greece. The report is prepared in the context of the enhanced surveillance framework which serves to ensure continued support for the delivery of Greece’s reform commitments following the successful completion of the financial assistance programme in 2018.

The report concludes that Greece has taken the necessary actions to achieve its due specific commitments, despite the challenging circumstances caused by the pandemic. The Greek authorities delivered on specific commitments across various areas, including privatisations, improving the business environment and tax administration, while advancing on wider structural reforms including in the area of school education and public administration.

The European institutions welcome the close and constructive engagement in all areas and encourage the Greek authorities to keep up the momentum and, where necessary, reinforce the efforts to remedy the delays partly caused by the pandemic.
