Featured The 2018 state budget foresees 3.8% primary surplus

The 2018 state budget tabled on Tuesday night in Parliament foresees that the country will return to capital markets next year to strengthen liquidity in the secondary bond market.

It further foresees a primary surplus of 3.82 percent of GDP and an economic growth rate of 2.5 percent.

The 2018 draft budget is expected to be voted at the plenum on December 22.

The draft budget brings more taxes and cuts to households and businesses and anemic growth, New Democracy said in a press release, commenting on the tabling of the new budget.
