BRUSSELS, Sept 4 The European Central Bank, the
European Commission and the International Monetary Fund, also
known as the troika, said on Thursday they would return to
Greece later in September to study reform progress under the
existing adjustment programme.
"Productive discussions were held on some key issues for the
forthcoming review of Greece's economic programme. The full
mission is expected to arrive in Athens in late September," the
European Commission said in a joint statement.
Athens has had to seek the help of international creditors
twice since 2010, winning an overall 240 billion-euro (312
billion-U.S. dollar) aid package to avert bankruptcy,
accompanied by painful austerity and reforms.
