Eurozone officials will discuss Greece today after Athens presented a list of reforms for legislation to show it is serious about acting on pledges to secure aid.

The reform list did not offer major new concessions beyond those already discussed with EU and IMF lenders, but Athens is hoping it will speed up slow-moving talks and allow for at least an initial deal to ease its cash crunch.

The reforms will be assessed at a meeting of technical-level teams from Greece and the lenders in Brussels today, Greek government officials said.

Despite lender scepticism, Athens is hoping an "interim" deal can be struck before a May 12 payment of €750m.
