Tripartite agrees on budget priorities for 2019


Government officials, employers and trade union leaders on Friday approved the priorities outlined in the government’s draft budget for 2019.

The Finance Ministry has proposed a state budget with a 40 billion crown deficit, that envisages a hike in public sector wages, higher pensions and more money for investments.

The government aims to scrap 1300 jobs in public administration, which should save around 3.4 billion crowns.
