  • [01] Fiscal deficit reduction

    The monthly trend of reducing the country's excessive fiscal deficit is better than provisions included in a Economic Policy Program, on a fiscal basis, according to available data on the execution of the state budget in the nine-month period from January to September 2010.

    An announcement by the Finance ministry on Wednesday, said the fiscal deficit fell to 16.299 billion euros, from 23.579 billion euros in 2009, a decline of 30.9 pct, up from a budget target for a decline of 29 pct on the nine-month period, although the annual target for cutting the deficit is 36.9 pct.

    The ministry noted that a difference from the annual target was attributed mainly to increased spending on interest -accounting more than 88 pct of the annual provision- while a difference in revenues was overshadowed by a better-than-expected course in public spending.
