Current trend

Yesterday, after the special summit of European leaders, the European Commission has started to develop a possible Greek withdrawal scenario.

At the close of Summit, the Greek leaders have been tasked to present a program of reforms by July 9, which will be further discussed by the Eurogroup. Eurozone financial stability and a way to reach a compromise, that would meet the requirements both of creditors and E.U. standards, are to be considered as well.
