State budget showed surplus of Sk4.3 billion in September

Slovakia's state budget showed a surplus of Sk4.3 billion (€143.3 million) in the January-September period, the Finance Ministry announced on October 1. The figure is down from a surplus of Sk5.1 billion (€168.76 million) that was recorded to the end of August. Compared to September 2007, when the budget showed a deficit of Sk615 million (€20.41 million), the figure for September 2008 also constitutes a year-on-year improvement of Sk4.932 billion (€163.71 million). The state budget draft for the 2008 as a whole approved by parliament at the end of the last year projected a state budget deficit of Sk32 billion (€1.06 billion). Budget incomes for the first nine months of this year stood at Sk241.867 billion (€8.03 billion), or 69.45 percent of the planned sum for the whole of 2008 (Sk348.252 billion, €11.56 billion). State budget expenditures for the same period were Sk237.549 billion (€7.89 billion), which is 62.47 percent of the projected sum of Sk380.233 billion (€12.62 billion). TASR
