Staff has estimated data prior to 2000 using growth rates from the October 2007 release of WEO. Therefore, these estimates should be treated as very provisional. Data for 2009 are provisional.

Fiscal assumptions: Macroeconomic, monetary and fiscal projections for 2012 and the medium term are consistent with the policies agreed to between the IMF staff and the authorities in the context of the Extended Fund Facility (EFF). The data include fiscal data revisions for 2006–09. These revisions rectify a number of shortfalls with earlier statistics. First, government-controlled enterprises whose 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 that 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 corrected 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.
