The Greek government's list of reforms, a 26-page document presented to the country's creditors, foresees revenues from 4.7 billion to 6.1 billion euros for the 2015 budget, the Financial Times reported on Wednesday.
At the same time, new expenditures are foreseen of 1.1 billion euros (mostly because of a bonus to supplement low-income pensions and other related expenses).
The result of both, the government said, will increase primary surplus (from 1.2 percent of GDP without the measures) to 3.1-3.9 percent of GDP. This year's GDP is foreseen at 1.4 percent, and next year's (2016) at 2.9 percent, while unemployment was expected to drop to 23.4 percent this year and 21.1 percent next year.
