Slovenia's budget revenue in the first three months of the year amounted to EUR 2.4 billion, up 1% year-on-year, while expenditure was up by 37% to almost EUR 3.68 billion for a deficit of nearly EUR 1.27 billion, according to a report by The Slovenia Times.
This compares to a EUR 304.9 million deficit in the same period last year, announced the Finance Ministry.
The ministry noted that the increased expenditure in the Q1 was related mostly to the COVID-19 epidemic and mitigation of its consequences on companies and residents.
