Greece Debt

The country is battling to rein in a bulging government debt that will reach 125% of GDP this year. Policymakers are hoping to reduce the domestic shortfall from 12.7% last year to less than 3% by 2012. To hit the targets, the Greek government plans to freeze civil servant pay, introduce taxes on wealthy estates, and increase tobacco and alcohol levies by 20%.
