FinMin predicts budget problems

Finance Minister Brigita Schmögnerová has predicted state budget income this year would hit Sk200 billion, Sk19.4 billion more than planned, based largely on increased tax income.

She added October 29 support in parliament for the eradication of eight publicly financed funds is uncertain, threatening approval of the 2002 budget. Next year's budget assumes the liquidation of the funds.

The government has promised the International Monetary Fund and World Bank it will liquidate the funds.
