Tuesday, January 18, 2005 Associated Press EU Tells Greece to Get Economy in Shape
The European Union raised the pressure on Greece Tuesday, saying it faces a hefty fine because its 2005 budget deficit will be 3.6 percent of gross domestic product - well over the maximum 3 percent allowed under the stability rules of the euro.
EU Finance Commissioner Joaquin Almunia is to recommend austerity measures for Greece that must be approved by the EU finance ministers.
