Lenders confident 'Greece can return to the market'

Greece's international lenders have agreed the latest instalment of a loan to the debt-stricken country, but say Greece must make "an extra effort" to address its deficit next year.

In May, the EU and the IMF agreed a rescue package worth up to 110bn euros ($145bn; £91bn) over three years.

Teams from the European Union, European Central Bank (ECB) and International Monetary Fund have concluded their second review of Greece's economic programme.

Poul Thomsen from the IMF said he believes that Greece is at a crossroads and needs to continue to make profound structural reforms.
