The Government has approved the Budget Plan for 2013 and 2014

  • It includes a combined adjustment between increase in revenue and cutbacks in expenditure of 39 billion euros in 2013, and 50.1 billion in 2014.
  • All the Public Administrations will contribute to achieving the budget stability goals.
  • This guarantees compliance with the fiscal consolidation path in order to bring the overall deficit of the Public Administrations down to 4.5% of GDP next year, and to 2.8% in 2014.
  • The economy will once again grow, at a rate of 1.2%, and jobs will be created in 2014, thanks to the correction of imbalances and to the efforts of all.


3 August 2012. The Council of Ministers has approved the biennial Budget Plan for 2013 and 2014, which has been sent to the European Commission. Said Plan, drawn up by the Ministry of Finance and Public Administrations, means complying with the commitment made to the European Union. The main goal is to announce the measures that will enable compliance with the fiscal consolidation path set, by correcting the imbalances accumulated in recent years, especially regarding public debt and deficit.

As opposed to this year's clearly adverse macroeconomic environment, the Plan reflects a slight (0.5%) drop in GDP in 2013, which will turn into growth of the economy in 2014, around 1.2%, thanks to the gradual recovery of private consumption and investment, and to the structural reforms implemented. Deficit reduction is guaranteed with the fiscal adjustment measures, both regarding expenditure and revenue. This will enable fiscal deficit to drop to 4.5% of GDP in 2013, and to 2.8% in 2014. All the Public Administrations—the Central Administration and Social Security, the Autonomous Communities and the Municipalities—will contribute to this.
