Compared to the approved budget, the performance of the general government was 0.6 percentage points better. The introduction of capitalization pension pillar contributed Sk18.2 billion to the general government deficit, representing 1.1 percent of GDP. The deficit of the general government budget excluding the influences of the pension reform was 2.5 percent of GDP.
