 Subject:  Reforms in Greece to create growth and jobs
 Answer in writing 

In our written question to the Commission of 15 July 2016, we asked how the Commission assesses compliance with macroeconomic adjustment programmes in Greece. The Commission’s reply of 6 December 2016 stated that compliance is assessed on the basis of whether legislation was enacted by the Greek parliament. It is clear that reforms can only have their desired effect if they are completely and correctly transposed into national law and subsequently enforced. This is particularly important if we want to create growth and jobs in Greece.

Does the Commission monitor which laws that have been enacted by the Greek parliament in the framework of the macroeconomic adjustment programmes have been correctly and fully implemented, and enforced by the Greek authorities?

Would the Commission be able to send Parliament an enforcement performance report with regard to the implementation of the three adjustment programmes by the Greek government?

Does the Commission agree that Greece has an implementation and enforcement deficit, which hampers job creation and growth?
