  • [01] Parliament endorses 2002 budget

  • [01] Parliament endorses 2002 budget

    22/12/2001 01:04:04

    Parliament in the early hours of Saturday passed the budget for 2002 after a five-day debate.

    Voting in favour of the budget were 155 deputies, with 143 voting against in the 300-member house. Two parliamentarians were absent in the roll-call vote.

    The growth-oriented budget forecasts a rise in gross domestic product of 3.8 percent in 2002, double the European average despite an adverse global climate.

    The budget also anticipates a surplus for the second straight year, and the public debt is due to maintain its gradual decline.

    The budgets of ministries implementing social policy are to rise, with those involved in public order seeing an increase of 20 percent.
