London (CNN) – Greece is once again at risk of a potentially disastrous default on its bill payments.

The country, which has been embroiled in a debt crisis for almost two years, faces a bill payment of €14.5 billion ($19.1 billion) on March 20. It is in frantic negotiations with both its private sector creditors and international lenders to lighten its debt load and access more funds to pay its bills.

This week marks another crucial point in the battle to bring Greece’s finances under control. As a 48-hour strike called by trade union leaders marks its second day, focus is turning to parliamentary deliberations over the country’s stricken finances.
