VIENNA (Reuters) – Austria plans to bring its budget deficit within the European Union’s limit of 3% of gross domestic product in 2023, a finance ministry presentation published shortly before Finance Minister Magnus Brunner’s budget speech said on Wednesday.

The presentation showed the budget deficit shrinking from 5.9% of GDP last year to 3.5% this year and 2.9% next year. It also showed the debt-to-GDP ratio falling from 82.3% in 2021 to 78.3% this year and 76.7% in 2023.
