IMF's Lagarde 'impressed by Greece'
International Monetary Fund (IMF) Managing Director Christine Lagarde said she was impressed by Greece's efforts to "restore the financial situation" in an interview with the U.S. television network CNBC.
During the Monday interview, Lagarde stressed the efforts at reform and noted that the country could well have achieved a primary surplus by the end of the year, though much still remained to be done to reform the economy, especially with the taxation system and tax authorities, privatisations and public-sector reform.
