It would also have to commit to a list of actions in six policy areas: fiscal and fiscal-structural, social welfare, financial stability, labor and product markets, privatization, as well as modernization in the public administration.
"Respect these commitments could be monitored using a quarterly basis," the document said, adding the reviews is produced by the eu Commission, the eu Central Bank, the International Monetary Fund plus the euro zone bailout fund ESM.
If the review is positive, Greece would get 1.2 billion euros in June yearly, or put into two tranches of 600 million euros each in June and December, from profits that is generated by euro zone central banks on their Greek bond portfolios as well as eliminating the step-up rate charged on second bailout loans, the document said.
