October 02, 2011

Oct. 2 (Bloomberg) -- Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou said his government will do all that’s needed to restore the country’s prestige and ensure a July 21 financing package is implemented.

“Important decisions which need to be taken on a European level depend first and foremost on us,” Papandreou told his ministers today in Athens, according to an e-mailed statement from his office. “We need to show our dedication to reaching the goals.”

Papandreou said that a special meeting of euro area finance ministers will be held on Oct. 13 to discuss an evaluation of Greece’s progress by the heads of a European Union, International Monetary Fund and European Central Bank mission, known as the troika.
