    "We have tabled realistic and reasonable proposals. The key issues are the VAT reform and the reduction of the primary surplus target, we ask for 1 pct in 2015 which will gradually grow to 3 pct in 2018. Review of the labour market's, of the energy and the privatisation regulations and measures for the private debt" he added.
