Summary:

A very ambitious fiscal adjustment effort is under way. Fiscal institutional and sectoral reforms have been elaborated for a more durable adjustment. Greece’s determination toward a comprehensive modernization of the health sector, beginning with a far-reaching reform of state enterprises and redoubling efforts to improve tax administration, is commended. An acceleration of reforms is essential to restore robust economic growth. Liquidity remains precariously tight. Pressure points are evident in the public sector, and still generally unfavorable investor sentiments suggest that the program is still at crossroads.
