Budget revenues grew more than 3.0 pct in August compared with same month last year, Alternate Finance   Minister Pantelis Economou said on Monday.
In a statement, the minister said increase was stable and of permanent nature, and he predicted that trend would be strengthened as long as an economic recession showed signs of improvement.
Economou stressed, however, that efforts against tax evasion, an "informal economy" and smuggling was far from over and that the government will intensify efforts towards achieving its goals of boosting tax revenue.
