Parliamentary debate starts on 2021, 2022 budgets

The National Assembly formally started debating the budgets for 2021 and 2022, as they were outlined to the MPs by PM Janez Janša and Finance Minister Andrej Šircelj.


Slovenia’s budget will remain in deficit in the next two years as the financing of measures to battle the effects of the coronavirus pandemic continues, but Janša said that the two budgets brought more money than it had been planned before the epidemic, chiefly due to EU recovery funds. He believes the budgets are optimistic and development-, welfare-, sustainability- and future-oriented. In the following weeks, they will be debated by parliamentary working bodies.
