The budgetary deficit for 2014 will be increased with 700 million lei, representing expenses for the ministry of defence, stated on Wednesday premier Victor Ponta, adding that this situation was negotiated by the minister of the budget Liviu Voinea with the EC representatives.

 

It is about 0.2% of the GDP for defence, yes, it was negotiated by the minister of budget with the European Commission’ Ponta said, who mentioned that the budgetary deficit for the present year will be increased by 700 million lei.

 

Ponta admitted, thus, that the deficit target will be increased. ‘Yes, it will be increased as we have obtained from the EC – not only us, and other countries in the region - this possibility to add to the deficit we have the expenses for the ministry of defence and I think this is a good thing as it was necessary’ Ponta said.
