Banks, Greece and SME access to loans top agenda in meeting with Dijsselbloem

It is high time that finance ministers changed tack on Greece’s debt sustainability and accepted a bank resolution system that is less prone to political power games, MEPs urged at Thursday’s parliamentary hearing of Eurogroup President Jeroen Dijsselbloem. The need to ease access to finance for small firms was also repeatedly raised.

Mr Dijsselbloem was fielding questions at his regular meeting with Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee MEPs.


MEPs asked whether, given possible early signs of recovery, the Eurogroup is going to make good its pledges that Greece's debt levels could be reduced more gradually, so as to enhance its growth prospects and alleviate the social consequences of austerity.

Jeroen Dijsselbloem: EU ministers 'losing patience' with Greece

Eurozone finance ministers are "losing patience" with Greece, Eurogroup president Jeroen Dijsselbloem told a Greek daily as the crisis-hit country prepared to unveil its next budget on Thursday.

"Many finance ministers of the eurozone are starting to lose patience," Dijsselbloem told Ta Nea daily after a lecture in The Hague on Wednesday.

A statement issued by the International Monetary Fund early on Thursday said that auditors from the IMF, the European Central Bank and the European Commission had concluded their latest visit to Greece to review progress on the country's economic programme.

German ex-chancellor Schroeder for sole EU finance minister. Also called for Turkey to be admitted in the EU.

AFP - Europe needs more integration, including a single finance minister for the bloc, if it is to remain competitive in the years to come, former German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder urged Thursday.
He warned however that Britain would do its best to block any attempts to bring the 28-member European union closer together, which would imply handing over more powers to Brussels. 

"The EU's political structure cannot remain static," Schroeder told an economic forum in Bregenz, in western Austria.
