Slovenian MPs have started today a discussion on the proposed amendments to the state budget for 2019. Proposed amendments suggest increase in revenues by 6.2% to EUR 10.35bn as well as increased expenditures by 4.8% to EUR 10.16bn.

There is an expected surplus of EUR 193.6m by the end of the year, which amounts to 0.4% of GDP. According to the minister of finance, Andrej Bertoncelj, state budget is now stable and focused on developments that will impact all  citizens.

Fiscal council warns that expected spending is about EUR 270m too high, posing a risk to medium-term sustainability of public finances.
