March 20, 2014
Poland ran up a budget deficit of PLN 42.19 billion at the end of December 2013 or 81.8% of revised deficit budgeted for last year, the Finance Ministry said on Wednesday.
Poland amended its budget in August last year increasing the deficit by 16 billion zlotys to 51.6 billion zlotys due to an economic slowdown.
Last year's revenues amounted to PLN 279.2 billion or 101.2 % of the plan, while expenditure reached PLN 321.3 billion or 98.2 % of the plan.
