  • [01] Gov't vice president discusses liquidity with heads of banks

    ANA/MPA---The liquidity of the banking sector, the contribution of banks in the fight against tax evasion, the improvement of public revenues collection and the more efficient use of development actions dominated a meeting between Government Vice-President Yiannis Dragasakis and the board of Hellenic Bank Association on Wednesday.

    During the meeting, the officials decided to set up a committee that in the next 30 days will draft a strategic plan for the development of digital transactions in Greece and the drastic limitation of cash.

    They also decided a further cooperation aiming at the best use of the opportunities arising from a series of development initiatives ("Juncker investment plan", various European programs, etc.)

    Dragasakis was also briefed on the course of the implementation of the government plan to set up a National Development Bank.

    Finally, they discussed the government's intention to explore the opportunities for Greece's participation in the New Development Bank of BRICS after the relevant proposal submitted to our country.

    [02] Budget revenues up 15.2 pct in April‏

    ANA/MPA---Net budget revenues surpassed targets by 15.2 pct, or by 500 million euros, in April offering a large breathe to the Finance ministry in managing its obligations. A Finance ministry announcement on Wednesday attributed this positive development to a massive response by taxpayers to a ministry plan offering more favorable payment terms for overdue debt, dividend payment by public sector enterprises and a delayed payment of a property tax.

    Net revenues surpassed 3.7 billion euros in April, further reducing a shortfall in the first quarter of the year. Ministry data showed that a total of 380,000 taxpayers have applied for inclusion in a favorable payment terms plan, with a total overdue debt of 2.8 billion euros, while cash collected so far reached 135 million euros.
