We are discussing the current program and what is needed to put it on the right track. There is a request from the Government Greek, in this regard, he said. The current program provides loans from the EU and IMF for 110 billion euros over three years, and new who studies the euro zone does not have concrete figures yet, although it shuffles its volume would be similar to that already in place.
