Agreement on changes in state budget is looming

On Wednesday, the coalition parties’ experts agreed to increase this year’s state budget deficit by nearly €4bn, say sources of the E daily. The SaS had initially rejected the first €3.4bn proposal, partly because Finance Minister Igor Matovič intended to push through the increase very quickly and without any discussion. Experts okayed two large items: €350m for two state-owned rail firms and a €500m reserve to cover losses from state-backed covid loans. They also approved new assistance schemes for companies during the potential third pandemic wave, with costs estimated between €250-750m.
