LISBON (Reuters) - Greece has corrected many of the structural imbalances that made it a “special case” within the euro zone, and it is ready to take charge of its economic decisions when its bailout ends in August, chairman of the euro zone finance ministers group said on Monday.

“Greece is a different country today,” Mario Centeno told a conference. “Greece has the conditions to take into its own hands the process of its economic and social development, within the euro framework, and can always count on European solidarity if it sticks to the path of internal responsibility.”
