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.
