Greek lawmakers approved on Wednesday the country's 2020 budget, which projects stronger growth driven by higher investment, improving domestic demand and tax cuts as the country recovers from a decade-long debt crisis.
A majority of 158 lawmakers in the 300-seat parliament approved the budget that includes total tax cuts of 1.2 billion euros for corporations and individuals.
The average household income in Greece plummeted by 42 percent, or 513 euros, between 2009 and 2014, according to the latest survey by the Dianeosis nonprofit think tank, which also maps out the impact of the country's financial crisis based on income and age group, gender, and professional orientation.
The Trump administration is freezing payments under an "Obamacare" program that protects insurers with sicker patients from financial losses, a move expected to add to premium increases next year.
