ATHENS (Reuters) – Greece projected its economy would grow by 2.8 percent next year on higher investments, domestic demand and tax cuts as the country recovers from a decade-long debt crisis.

Athens expects a primary surplus of 3.56 of GDP next year and its debt falling to 167% percent of GDP in 2020 from 173.3% this year, according to data of the 2020 budget formally submitted to parliament for approval on Thursday.
