  • [01] Greece has the potential to boost employment and pay back its debt, EU's Moscovici says

    ANA/MPA---"Greece has the potential to boost employment and pay back its debts," European Commissioner for Economic and Financial Affairs Pierre Moscovici told Italian newspaper "Corriere della Sera."

    "It (Greece) does not send a message of instability, it will remain in the eurozone," he underlined.

    Moscovici said that he does not want to discuss with Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras "where he wants to go" but "how he wants to meet his target" adding that along with Tsipras "we will deal with the debt issue in a clear way."

    Asked on the possibility of a partial debt write-off, the European Commissioner said that it is premature to make such a discussion as the negotiation has not yet started.

    "We expect the Greek government to express its will, to tell us how they will respect the country's commitments, and to present their clear decisions. We congratulate Mr. Tsipras and his ministers. Together, we are going to face challenges with common goals," he concluded.

    [02] Tax and custom revenues up 0.28 pct in 2014‏

    ANA/MPA---Revenues by tax and custom agencies grew 0.28 pct in 2014, while overdue tax collection rose 12.8 pct in the same period, the Public Revenue Secretariat-General said on Wednesday.

    In a report, the secretariat-general said that tax and custom agencies' revenue totaled 44.44 billion euros in 2014, from 44.31 billion in 2013, of which tax revenue totaled 32.58 billion euros, up 1.24 pct.

    Overdue tax collection totaled 3.68 billion euros in 2014, up 12.8 pct from 2013. The report noted that overdue tax collection grew by more than 20 pct until the end of October but slowed down in the last two months of the year as taxpayers awaited for a more favorable payment scheme by the government.

    The report noted that overdue tax collection from wealthy taxpayers totaled 395.5 million euros in 2014, surpassing a budget target by 13.01 pct. Home auctions totaled 18 in 2014, for a total debt of 140,862,105 euros.
