ATHENS, Greece – Greece's government has submitted its 2014 budget to Parliament despite still not having reached a deal with international creditors on what austerity measures need to be taken next year.
Yannis Stournaras submitted the budget to Parliament Thursday morning.
Debt inspectors from the International Monetary Fund, European Commission and European Central Bank, collectively known as the troika, have been at odds with the government over a series of measures, including home foreclosures. The troika representatives were leaving the country Thursday, and are to return in December.
Greece has been dependent on billions of euros in rescue loans from other European countries and the IMF since May 2010. In return, the country has had to drastically reform its finances and impose a series of austerity measures.
