The significant increase in government revenue lately has created favorable conditions on the financial front and leaves room for new social benefits by the end of the year. According to Greece’s General Accounting Office, revenue surplus in September exceeded the 500m euros.

This development, combined with additional revenue from the regulation of 120 tranches for government debtors and online betting licenses, is estimated to allow the Treasury to prepare a preliminary draft budget of 2020 without a budget gap for next year.
