According to today’s prediction by the National Economy Ministry, Hungary’s state debt as a percentage of GDP is likely to fall to 76.9% – lower than expected – by the end of the year, down from last year’s 77.3%.
The announcement came following the Central Statistics Office (KSH) submissions of a scheduled Excessive Deficit Procedure report to the European Commission.
The ministry confirmed the government's speculation of reaching 2.9%-of-GDP general government deficit target for this year. GDP growth is expected to reach 3.1% this year, the ministry added.
