Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Fi­nance Min­is­ter Eu­clid Tsakalo­tos pauses for a mo­ment yes­ter­day dur­ing a press con­fer­ence in­au­gu­rat­ing a new on­line sys­tem aimed at crack­ing down on tax eva­sion, which re­mains rampant in Greece de­spite years of ef­forts by suc­ces­sive gov­ern­ments to curb it at the ex­hor­ta­tion of the coun­try’s in­ter­na­tional cred­i­tors. Of­fi­cials hailed the new sys­tem dur­ing the press con­fer­ence while con­ced­ing that a lack of staff and the min­istry’s less than up-to-date com­puter sys­tem may ham­per its ef­fi­ciency.
