The government will meet to debate the 2013 budget on Wednesday. The budget is tailored to a 100 billion crown deficit which should bring the gap in public finances to under 3 percent of the GDP. Expenditures are projected at 1,185 billion crowns, revenues at 1,085. The proposed budget hangs on the approval of government proposed tax-hikes which parliament recently rejected and which the government sent back unrevised linked to a vote of confidence in the Nečas administration. The government is also expected to discuss measures taken in connection with the methanol poisoning scare.
