Senior government sources have confirmed that the details to next year’s budget, which is expected to be brought before parliament in October, have been compiled in the pre-budget document that will be presented to the media next Tuesday by Finance Minister Tonio Fenech.
Restrained by an Excessive Deficit Procedure imposed by the European Commission for overstepping the deficit criteria in 2008, government is intent on focusing on strengthening Malta’s competitiveness and jobs.
