PM positive on 2013 budget, despite unfavorable macro outlook

Prime Minister Donald Tusk
The Polish government is not currently working on any new version for the 2013 budget, Prime Minister Donald Tusk told reporters in Brussels when asked if a budget revision would likely stem from Poland's low inflation and economic slowdown.
"We are not currently working on the 2013 budget," Tusk said.
Poland has budgeted a deficit of PLN 35.6 billion for FY 2013.
Budget revenues are planned at PLN 299.39 billion and expenditure at PLN 334.95 billion.
Those forecasts were built on a 2.2% GDP growth forecast and average annual inflation of 2.7%. Those figures appear more budget-friendly than current consensus forecasts.
