First post-bailout IMF report on Greece: Economy improving; less taxes, key reforms needed
12 March 2019
The IMF repeated its “less taxes, more reforms” mantra for Greece, in releasing its “country report” on Tuesday, the Fund’s first post-bailout scrutiny of the country amid the current “enhanced supervision” regime.
The report begins on a positive note, stressing that ” Greece has now entered a period of economic growth that puts it among the top performers in the eurozone. It must now persevere with efforts to address crisis legacies and pursue needed reforms to ensure continued success, says the IMF in its recent assessment of the country’s economy.”
