Monday, 28 October 2013
Greek government officials said no new horizontal measures will be taken, the Athens News Agency-Macedonian Press Agency reported.
The government is examining taking structural measures to contain overspending, combating social security contributions evasion and putting a ceiling on public sector enterprises’ spending, the agency quoted government officials as saying in Brussels.
“The structural measures to be taken will allow us to move forward and everything will go well in consultations with the troika,” they said.
The sources also commented on a new property tax legislation, saying it would be fair to expand a tax basis and reduce the final tax, adding that this final tax has been reduced by 15% in 2012 and will be reduced by another 10-15% this year.
