to the Commission
Rule 130

 Subject:  Results of the memorandum of understanding and cohesion policy in Greece
 Answer in writing 

Having taken note of the 15 reforms implemented within the time scale set by the Tsipras government, and its commitment to completing the final steps needed to bring the privatisation fund into operation and reform the revenue agency, the Eurogroup recently gave the go-ahead for disbursement to Greece of a new tranche of loans worth EUR 2.8 billion. However, while a first instalment of EUR 1.1 billion was given the green light straightaway, the remaining EUR 1.7 billion has been frozen until the institutions can ascertain that an identical sum in sovereign debt has been repaid from private funds.

Bearing in mind that, in the past, the various tranches of aid were used chiefly to reimburse the ECB and other banking entities, can the Commission say what Greece has really achieved on the poverty, education, health, welfare state and employment fronts as a result of delivering on what was agreed with the troika (IMF, ECB, the Commission) in the memorandum of understanding?

Furthermore, in order to have a complete overview of the Greek situation, how much did the EU’s cohesion policy contribute in the 2007-2013 period to employment in Greece?
