Enhanced Surveillance Report on Greece, November 2019
Fourth enhanced surveillance report
On 20 November 2019, the European Commission published the fourth enhanced surveillance report for Greece. It is issued alongside the assessment of Greece’s 2020 Draft Budgetary Plan and serves also as a specific monitoring report under the macroeconomic imbalance procedure for Greece under the European Semester, which was identified as experiencing excessive imbalances in the 2019 European Semester.
This report is based on the findings of a mission to Athens between 23 and 26 September 2019 conducted by the Commission in liaison with the European Central Bank. The European Stability Mechanism participated in the context of its Early Warning System and in line with the Memorandum of Understanding of 27 April 2018 on working relations between the European Commission and European Stability Mechanism.
