Poland's government will increase spending on health, roads and the rail system under a revised 2021 budget approved by lawmakers, officials have said.
Polish MPs at the end of last week backed plans to amend this year's budget, with the deficit expected to be no more than PLN 40.4 billion (EUR 8.7 billion), less than half of the initial target of PLN 82.3 billion, state news agency PAP reported.
Government revenue is expected to total PLN 483 billion in 2021, with spending set at PLN 523.4 billion, under the revised financial plan approved by the lower house of Poland's parliament late on Friday.
The bill now goes to the upper house, the Senate, for further debate.
