‘Better’ bailout deal clinched

THE GOVERNMENT yesterday clinched a deal with the troika on a €10 billion bailout programme with ‘better’ terms than the previous draft memorandum, said government spokesman Christos Stylianides. 
“This is a very important development which ends a very long period of uncertainty,” he said, adding that the conditions have now been put in place to inject life back into the economy.
