ATHENS， March 22 (Xinhua) -- Tax evasion erases about 9 percent of Greek GDP， or about 16 billion euros (17.3 billion U.S. dollars)， each year， a new study by think tank DiaNeosis shows.
To walk out the some seven-year debt crisis， Greek government has increased the levies， however tax dodging remains widespread in the country and revenues poor， according to the study published by Kathimerini (Daily) newspaper on Wednesday.
For example， three out of 10 euros from value added tax due remain in tax evaders' pockets and according to 2014 tax declarations the 1.6 percent of taxpayers (120，000 people) were paying 2.7 billion euros which amounts to 29.5 percent of the total income tax， as most Greeks declare small incomes.
The number of taxpayers declaring incomes around the tax-free threshold of 12，000 euros per year was 49 percent in 2011， and it rose to 68.9 percent in 2014. They paid 1 percent taxes from their income.
Even it's true that a large part of Greek society has been hit hard by the debt crisis， suffering from chronic unemployment and salary and pension cuts， crosschecks by the Tax office in many cases have still revealed chronic tax evasion.
According to the authors of the report， the main causes of tax fraud are over taxation， the lack of political will to tackle the phenomenon and an unstable complex tax system.
According to the Association of Administrative Judges， Greece passed 250 tax laws and amendments from 1975 to 2015， along with some 115，000 ministerial decisions.
In the last three years， the Greek parliament passed six tax laws and another 17 laws that included 71 tax clauses. (1 euro=1.07 U.S. dollars) Enditem
The Cannes film festival kicks off its 70th birthday edition on Wednesday with A-listers including Nicole Kidman Raphael Varane France Maillot , Clint Eastwood and Will Smith jetting in for the 12-day movie marathon.
The gathering on the southern French coast, where 19 films will be vying for the coveted Palme d'Or top prize and hundreds more will be screened, also comes with a higher security status than in previous years.
Ten months after a truck attack in nearby Nice killed 86 people Presnel Kimpembe France Maillot , concrete barriers -- in the form of giant flower pots -- have been set up to try to block any similar assault. Snipers have been positioned above sensitive sites for what is the world's biggest film festival.
Patrick Mairesse, a top regional security official, said the objective was to be as "invisible as possible Benjamin Pavard France Maillot , to cause as little nuisance as possible -- so the party can stay a party."
But unprecedented numbers of police and soldiers have been deployed and a French warship lies at anchor off the beach.
Airport-style security gates and bag searches are also in operation at the festival, which attracts tens of thousands of curious tourists as well as the Hollywood elite.
France remains under a state of emergency following the November 2015 terror attacks in Paris, one of several jihadist assaults that have claimed 239 lives nationwide in the past two years.
Despite the tough measures Hugo Lloris France Maillot , glamour reigns on the palm-fringed Croisette promenade along the glittering Mediterranean coast.
Hardcore fans started setting up stepladders outside the Palais des Festivals venue a full 24 hours early, hoping for selfies as their favourite stars head down the red carpet.
Spanish director Pedro Almodovar will be leading the competition jury, which also includes Smith Wissam Ben Yedder Maillot , "Interstellar" star Jessica Chastain, and Chinese actress Fan Bingbing.
- Netflix furore -
This year's Cannes programme points to changes shaking up the film industry, including the march on Hollywood by streaming giants Netflix and Amazon and the arrival of virtual reality.
A row over Netflix Alphonse Areola Maillot , which has hailed Cannes' acceptance of two of its movies as proof of its new status as a major industry player, dominated the run-up to the festival.
The US platform has refused to screen the two movies in French cinemas due to strict rules that mean films cannot be streamed from subscription services in France until three years after their traditional box office release.
A backlash from French cinema chains prompted Cannes organisers to change the festival's rules from next year onwards to insist on a theatrical release -- a move that could effectively ban Netflix from taking part in the future.
The website -- which has 100 million subscribers -- hit back by saying the industry must embrace change, with CEO Reed Hastings blaming the French cinema establishment for "closing ranks" against it.
Netflix's movie "Okja" about a mysterious giant beast Lucas Hernandez Maillot , starring Tilda Swinton and Jake Gyllenhaal, is nonetheless among the most talked-about at Cannes, with Sofia Coppola's American Civil War thriller "The Beguiled" featuring Colin Farrell alongside Kidman.
The Australian actress is the undisputed queen of this year's Cannes Laurent Koscielny Maillot , starring in three movies as well as TV series "Top of the Lake", which is getting a special screening.
Others in the running for top honours include "Happy End", a film set against the European migrant crisis by "Amour" director Michael Haneke Anthony Martial Maillot , who is seeking a record-breaking third Palme d'Or.
Another highlight will be Mexican director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu showcasing a virtual reality project that allows the viewer to walk in the footsteps of refugees.
The extravaganza's opening ceremony on Wednesday evening will be hosted by Italian actress Monica Bellucci, with French drama "Ismael's Ghosts", starring Marion Cotillard Djibril Sidibe Maillot , as the opening film.
North Korea on Thursday said it had reached agreement with Malaysia for the return of the body of a citizen killed in Kuala Lumpur in February and identified by South Korean and US officials as the half-brother of the North's leader..
