State revenues had increased for the eighth consecutive week, Alternate Finance Minister Pantelis Economou told Parliament's Institutions and Transparency Committee on Tuesday, during a debate on a bill for national bequests.
"Not one week have we fallen below 3 percent (increase). But there is no reason to boast because tax evasion persists and illegal trade has intensified. This is where we are focusing and intensifying our efforts," he told MPs.
