    [02] More than 50 pct of Greek citizens unable to meet tax obligations, report‏

    ANA/MPA---"It is obvious that Greek society has reached its limits, as more than 50 pct of citizens are unable to meet their obligations to the tax agency and social insurance funds, while the vast majority of citizens doubted the possible benefits from a package of measures announced by the government with the aim to lighten households' spending and at the same time they question the effectiveness of the economic program announced by the main opposition political party. However, more and more citizens seem to hope over an improvement in their household finances and in the economy in general," Constantine Mihalos, president of the Athens Chamber of Commerce and Industry said on Tuesday.

    Presenting the second "Economic Barometer" report for 2014, conducted by Alco on a sample of 1,000 adults around Greece in the period 16-18 September, Mihalos said that only 29 pct of respondents citizens believed that their spending will be reduced following a package of measures announced by the government, while a 26 pct of respondents said the economic programe presented by SYRIZA could be implemented.

    A 55 pct of respondents said they were unable to meet their tax and social insurance obligations, while a 22 pct of respondents said they were optimistic over economic developments in the country, up from 18 pct in the previous report.
