Troika warning

Q THE Troika has warned that this year's Budget must be strictly implemented – including in the health sector – and that more could be done to tackle unemployment.

In a joint statement following its 10th review mission, the EU, ECB and IMF said the bailout programme remained on track and that gradual recovery was continuing.

While stating growth needs to pick up to boost employment, it said further efforts were important to help those out of work.

And it said efforts must be made to open up "sheltered" sectors of the economy to competition.
