Fiscal assumptions: Projections for 2014 and beyond reflect the authorities’ 2012–17 multiyear budget and April 2013 stability plan, adjusted for fiscal packages and differences in assumptions on macro and financial variables, and revenue projections. The fiscal data for 2011 were revised following a May 15, 2013 revision by the statistical institute of both national accounts and fiscal accounts. Fiscal data for 2012 reflect preliminary outturn published by the statistical institute in May 2013. The underlying assumptions for 2013 remain unchanged as the 2013 budget has not been revised and thus there is no new fiscal measure announced for 2013. However, projections for 2013 reflect discussion with the authorities on monthly development on spending and revenue.

Fiscal assumptions: Projections for 2014 and beyond reflect the authorities’ 2012–17 multiyear budget and April 2013 stability plan, adjusted for fiscal packages and differences in assumptions on macro and financial variables, and revenue projections. The fiscal data for 2011 were revised following a May 15, 2013 revision by the statistical institute of both national accounts and fiscal accounts. Fiscal data for 2012 reflect preliminary outturn published by the statistical institute in May 2013. The underlying assumptions for 2013 remain unchanged as the 2013 budget has not been revised and thus there is no new fiscal measure announced for 2013. However, projections for 2013 reflect discussion with the authorities on monthly development on spending and revenue.
