Latest actual data: 2010. These data are still provisional.
Fiscal assumptions: Macroeconomic and fiscal projections for 2011 and the medium term are consistent with the policies agreed to between IMF staff and the authorities in the context of the Stand-By Arrangement. Fiscal projections assume a strong front-loaded fiscal adjustment, which already started in 2010, but will be followed through with further measures in 2011–13. Growth is expected to bottom out in late 2010 and gradually rebound after that, coming into positive territory in 2012. The data include fiscal data revisions for 2006-2009. These revisions rectify a number of shortfalls with earlier statistics. First, government controlled enterprises where sales cover less than 50 percent of production costs have been reclassified into the general government sector, in line with Eurostat guidelines. A total of 17 such enterprises or entities were identified and included, including a number of large loss-making entities. The inclusion implies that the debt of these entities (7¼ percent of GDP) is now included in headline general government debt data, and their annual losses increase the annual deficit (to the extent their called guarantees were not already reflected). Second, the revisions reflect better information on arrears (including tax refund arrears, arrears on lump sum payments to retiring civil servant pensioners, and arrears to health sector suppliers), as well as corrections of social security balances on account of corrections of imputed interest payments, double counting of revenues, and other inaccuracies. Finally, new information on swaps also became available and further helps explain the upward revision in debt data.
