Tsipras has to deliver on reforms now

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras appointed two respected bailout negotiators to head his economic team, Reuters reported. Tsipras reappointed Euclid Tsakalotos as finance minister and made George Chouliarakis deputy finance minister. “Tsipras has to show himself as a trustworthy partner,” cep economist Matthias Kullas told Sueddeutsche Zeitung. Yet, the reforms agreed with the country’s international lenders will be painful for many Greeks, Kullas cautioned. “It is a vast mine field which Tsipras has to cross now,” the economist said.
