Total expenditure of 28.1 billion euros was 20.9 per cent higher than in 2022.

The total budget surplus according to the national methodology amounted to 34.3 million euros, which corresponds to 0.04 per cent of GDP.

According to the international ESA methodology, the general government budget deficit for 2023 amounted to 528.3 million euros or 0.7 per cent of GDP.

The public debt to GDP ratio was 63 per cent at the end of 2023 and there are plans to reduce this ratio below the Maastricht limit of 60 per cent by the end of the year, Primorac said.
