    Finance Minister Nikos Christodoulakis said today the government did not agree with a European Commission report, which forecasts a public deficit for Greece well above estimations by the ministry, as well as a slowdown in the growth rate after next year's Olympic Games. Christodoulakis said the forecasts were unrealistic and noted there was a risk of a slump in the growth rate only if economic policies changed after 2004.
