Greece's 2012 primary budget gap seen at 1.2 pct of GDP- source
ATHENS Jan 4 (Reuters) - Greece may end 2012 with a better-than-targeted primary budget gap of 1.2 percent of gross domestic product (GDP) a finance ministry official said on Friday.
Greece's primary budget balance, which excludes debt servicing costs, was forecast at around 1.5 percent under the country's medium-term fiscal plan.
"The primary budget gap in 2012 will be lower than 1.5 percent, around 1.2 percent," the official who declined to be named told Reuters.
