According to the government’s draft 2013 budget, Greece hopes to narrow the budget gap to 4.2% of GDP (€8bn) from a projected 6.6% ratio this year. Not including interest payments on Greece’s towering debt burden, the government hopes to achieve a small primary budget surplus of 1.1% (€2.2bn). The draft budget sees Greece’s economy contracting by a 3.8% rate next year and following a projected 6.5% decline this year.
The troika rejected €2bn worth of cutbacks and tax measures proposed by the three leaders, saying the measures are too uncertain to be counted towards deficit targets. The negotiations between the government and the troika will be continued.
