Greece: IMF Staff Concluding Statement of the 2018 Article IV Mission



Greece: Staff Concluding Statement of the 2018 Article IV Mission, IMF

"Further efforts are needed to overcome crisis legacies and to boost productivity, competitiveness, and social inclusion. Macroeconomic imbalances have been largely eliminated, but high public debt, weak bank and other private sector balance sheets, capital controls, government arrears, and the large at-risk population weigh on growth prospects, and progress with key fiscal and market reforms has lagged. Greece needs to continue its reform efforts if it is to achieve sustained high growth and secure competitiveness within the Euro Area, while also supporting those in greatest need. The authorities’ growth strategy contains promising elements in this respect, and further assessment of gaps, continuity with current reforms, and implementation will be crucial".
