Slovenia's budget gap 2.9% of GDP

Slovenia's general government deficit in 2015 was 1.13 billion euros or 2.9 per cent of Gross Domestic Product, according to the latest figures released by the national statistical office.

Earlier statistics showed that the budget gap accounted for 2.2% of GDP.

The updated figures are the result of the new methodology of showing current transactions of "a bad bank" that include expenditures in the amount of 270 million euros incurred due to non-performing loans and covered by the government.
