International creditors will prepare decisions to facilitate successful programme exits in the coming months for debt-stricken countries in Europe, EU Commissioner for Economic and Monetary Affairs Olli Rehn said on Friday.
Addressing a press conference after the eurozone finance ministers' meeting,Rehn said, "Troika will prepare decisions to facilitate successful programme exits in coming months for Ireland, Spain and Portugal."
Speaking about Greece, Rehn said, "We will assess financing needs and the fiscal gap in Greece in the review mission starting Monday. At this stage, it is too early to give figures."
He also noted that much more needs to be done to remove bottlenecks to growth that are holding back the economy. "We have three months of very intense work ahead of us," Rehn said.
He added it was important Europe "stay the course of reform," stating the economy showed encouraging signs and gradual recovery.
