Payroll spending by Greece’s 52 public sector enterprises was down 15 pct, or 143.4 million euros, in the January-September period this year, compared with the same period in 2009, with the government expecting to save around 220 million euros for the year, a finance ministry announcement stated on Wednesday.

Total payroll was 812.3 million euros in the nine-month period, down from 955.7 million euros in 2009, reflecting a cost-cutting policy implemented for public sector enterprises.

The Hellenic Foreign Trade Board (HEPO) topped the list of average payroll costs (38,447 euros), followed by ISAP (35,111 euros), DE.PANOM (33,104 euros) and Trainose (31,198 euros).

EOMMEX (15,737 euros), the Greek Festival (formerly Athens festival) (15,805 euros) and Gaiaose (19,272 euros) recorded the lowest payroll costs.
