If the budget update was not approved, the cost of servicing government debt would increase

If the budget update was not approved, the cost of servicing government debt would become higher, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance Assen Vassilev pointed out and added that the changes in the budget envisage the limit of new government debt this year to rise by 1.5 billion euros to 5 billion and 150 million euros.

According to Vassilev, the hike will be used to repay next year's debt, with the difference likely to be almost 1 percentage point. This is a significant expense for the budget, which can be avoided if the debt was issued this year, Vassilev said.
