    Cyprus' Finance Minister Harris Georgiades has defended the structural size of the deficit targets contained in the 2017 state budget, as well as the methodology used in the text of the 2017 Cyprus Budgetary Plan, in his letter sent to the European Commission as part of the European semester consultation.

    The letter, which is dated October 27, 2016, is publicly accessible on the website of Directorate General of Economic and Financial Affairs of the European Commission and is addressed to the Vice EC President Valdis Dombrovskis and Commissioner of Finance Pierre Moskovici. It is practically a response to an earlier letter of the two, which included a "skewed", according to the ministry, assessment on the structural deficit for 2017 for -2%.
