"Greece's economy will contract more than projected in 2013, its sixth year of recession, under the weight of the next round of austerity measures demanded by international creditors... to open the way for the country's next aid tranche from its second €173 billion bailout.
... The latest package includes €10.5 billion in spending cuts and €3 billion in higher taxes, according to government officials. Of the spending cuts, €6.7 billion will come from pensions and public-sector salaries and bonuses, while an additional €3.8 billion will come from government operating expenses.
The spending cuts in the package envision raising Greece's retirement age to 67 from 65 currently; cutting two extra-month bonuses now paid to public servants and retirees; cutting wages to uniformed personnel by 12% on average; cutting pensions above €1,000 a month by as much as 10%; and reducing other supplemental pensions.
... Greece hopes that by securing a deal on the fresh budget cuts, it will be able to push ahead with a demand to extend the implementation of its bailout program by another two years in an effort to ease the pain of austerity measures on the recession-ravaged economy."
