Prime minister Alexis Tsipras wants to prove to the EU that he can turn Greece's economy around
Syriza leader Mr Tsipras, 42, is facing pressure from the European Central Bank and senior figures in the European Union (EU) that he is capable of turning the country's capital markets to profit while keeping his commitments on €86bn in loans.
Greek financial chiefs say there will be a 2.7 percent GDP growth for 2017 while the European Commission has put it currently at -0.3 percent.
Now two years after he pledged to end "austerity" and fight back against "humiliation and suffering" the Greek leader has failed to live up to his pledges.
Anger is mounting over Mr Tsipras performance as far ranging cuts continue to hit the economy hard.
And just this week the Federation of Greek Enterprises (SEV), Greece's largest employers' association raised the spectre of Grexit once more.

According to local reports the SEV warned the country is preparing to walk away.
The pro-business association reiterated the most significant reform than can occur in 2017 is for Greek leadership.
And the electorate is also reeling from the scale of the migrant crisis which has caused protests on the streets over a lack of intervention by EU leaders.

Greece is struggling to cope with the cost of 60,000 settled refugees and tens of thousands more people who have been using boats to travel to the country from the Middle East and Africa.
Mr Tsipras has previously slammed the EU for not doing more to help Greece deal with the issue.

He said: "I feel shamed as a member of this European leadership, both for the inability of Europe in dealing with this human drama, and for the level of debate at a senior level, where one is passing the buck to the other.
"These are hypocritical, crocodile tears which are being shed for the dead children on the shores of the Aegean.
"Dead children always incite sorrow, but what about the children that are alive who come in thousands and are stacked on the streets?"
