  • [01] Parliament passes amendment on settlement of arrears to state

    ANA-MPA - An amendment on the settlement of arrears to the state passed in Parliament on Friday afternoon by the votes of the two ruling coalition parties New Democracy and PASOK, as well as by those of opposition Democratic Left (DIMAR) and Independent Greeks (ANEL), the latter of whom expressed certain reservations.

    Main opposition Radical Left Coalition SYRIZA and independent deputies declared their presence while Golden Dawn (Chryssi Avgi) and the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) turned it down.

    The amendment also includes regulations on VAT for restaurants. It was appended to an Administrative Reform ministry bill, which passed, on adapting Greek legislation to European Parliament and Council Directive 2013/37/EU promoting transparency in the public sector.

    [02] Discussion of Greek debt to begin after Dec. 8 eurogroup, FinMin says in interview

    ANA-MPA - The real discussion on the further management of the Greek debt will begin after the eurogroup meeting on December 8, Finance Minister Gikas Hardouvelis told Imerissia economic daily in an interview published Saturday.

    According to the interview, Hardouvelis said that other issues that will be discussed at the time include a precautionary credit line and the country's exit from the memorandum.

    He also noted, according to the paper, that the road to reduced tax rates would open as of the new year, and that a reduction of officially set ("objective") prices on real estate would be speeded up, affecting the unified property tax first introduced this year (ENFIA) positively.

    The only threat looming was that of political instability, he said, and expressed his optimism over future upgrades of the Greek economy by credit agencies.
