PM Janez Janša and Finance Minister Andrej Šircelj highlighted the record investment spending as parliament began its debate on the 2021 and 2022 budgets.
Šircelj said the budgets had been drawn up in uncertain conditions caused by the pandemic. Janša stressed that it was nonetheless easier to plan revenue and expenditure more realistically now than in the spring when the first wave of the epidemic began. Opposition parties claimed the budgets had no clear strategy and came without a plan on how to stabilise public finances.
