Last quote by Pierre Moscovici on Greece

Confidence in Greece is really coming back, but we need to continue the good work. We need to be on the bicycle, and to keep on pedalling. That's the case for Europe, as a whole. If you don't go that way, that bicycle falls. The (debt relief) measures must be implemented at the end of the bailout programme, but the decisions can be taken before that. We must continue to work hard towards completing the programme.feedback

All quotes by Pierre Moscovici on Greece

We are not considering a fourth programme. We are in the third programme and three is a lot. What we would like is that programme to be a success so that there is an exit from the programme. That is clearly our target.feedback

What I hope is that, trying to find a compromise and in the spirit of progress for Greece and for the eurozone, we can reach a staff level agreement before the end of this week so that we can have a successful Eurogroup on December 5, opening the way to what I am looking for – a package deal, a global agreement.feedback

All remaining milestones have been completed.feedback

One could have wished to see more progress than we have? but what I state is that we have seen in recent days an intensification of efforts by the Greek authorities.feedback

It is time for normality, it is time for stability, it is time for implementation and it is time for investment. That doesn't mean that everything is done. We still have a way to go and there are discussions taking place and the need to complete some milestones for the first review and also to discuss the so-called second review.feedback

The Greek authorities have done 95 per cent of changes necessary but not all is finalised. Some changes have to be made in the coming hours.feedback

I am confident Athens will use the time before the Eurogroup to finalise the limited issues that are still open.feedback

I can tell you that there was very good progress in Athens. In my view, we are close to an agreement.feedback

The memorandum of understanding (with Greece) does not speak about decades. The MoU speaks about 2018 and what we want to meet is 3.5 percent in 2018.feedback

We will keep on working. The meeting was suspended but we will continue to try to find an agreement, it's still possible and – more than ever -necessary. We still want Greece to stay in the euro, in best conditions, with strong reforms and a sustainable future.feedback

There is of course still much hard work ahead to deliver the jobs and the investment the european union and the euro area need – that's why all actors in europe need to use all available tools to strenghten our economic fundamentals.feedback

We have common goals; ensuring that Greece as a nation can stand on its own two feet, clean up its finances, and become a jobs generator again. A Greece that is growing, and can pay its debts.feedback

Of course, there is still more progress to be made, especially in reforming the public sector. We will ask Greece to make the necessary efforts, take crucial decisions. I think the basis is there for a political agreement later.feedback

If we succeed in closing the review which I hope, I will work for with the teams of the Commission, by the end of February next year, the troika will leave Greece. And we will move to another phase.feedback
