Greece’s 2010 budget is the most difficult one since the fall of The Junta in 1974, writes the Greek Ta Nea daily, citing Finance Minister Giorgos Papakonstantinou, who presented the main parameters and objectives of the budget.
The three objectives of the new budget, the minister says, are economic recovery, state reforms and confidence restoration. Papakonstantinou highlighted the government tries to assist the socially disadvantaged and assured the budget takes into account PASOK’s election pledges. The minister noted the budget does not envisage a rise in any tax, except for the excise duties on alcohol and cigarettes.
