 Dear all,
as many of you had contacted us with relevant questions, please find a
short description on the proposals of the Greek Government for the "bridge
– programme" of the following four months.
Attached, for your convenience, you may find the full version of the
Thessaloniki Programme in EN and a short version in FR.

* Apparently, there have been fragmental and false leaks to the press with

b.            Combatting tax evasion
c.             Combatting entanglement and corruption
d.            Combatting smuggling (namely of fuel and tobacco)
e.            Rebuilding of the public sector- reducing bureaucracy

4. Labour reforms, particularly with regard to collective contracts and
bargaining agreements.

5. No reference is made to to the renown OECD toolkit but to the Gurria -
Tsipras agreement for necessary structural reforms needed by the country

6. Finally , no reference is made of the reinstatement of the laid off
workers in the public sector as the relevant minister has already declared
that their reinstatement is included in the recruitments, already
