Troika focus on NHS

The troika has given the government until the end of January 2014 to present revisions to the plan for a national health scheme (NHS), reports said on Saturday.

The delegation of international lenders on Saturday continued their contacts with Cypriot authorities in the context of the second review of the implementation of the Cypriot adjustment programme.

Technocrats from the EU Commission the ECB and the IMF, collectively known as the troika, discussed the proposed NHS with health and finance officials. Implementation of the health scheme is part of the memorandum of understanding with international lenders.

Sources told the Cyprus News Agency that the Cypriot authorities had secured an extension in a bid to collect more data to ensure the scheme would not burden vulnerable groups financially.

The troika is said to have granted the government more time until January 2014 – a month’s extension – to present the figures.

The technocrats also reviewed anti moneylaundering enforcement on the basis of an independent audit carried out by Deloitte last March.

Troika heads are due to begin drafting a revised MoU containing the reforms made as well as the work still to be done until the programme ends in 2016.
