IMF Says Romania May Need More Measures to Reach Budget Goals

October 06, 2011

Oct. 6 (Bloomberg) -- The International Monetary Fund said Romania will need to take more measures to narrow its budget deficit below 3 percent of gross domestic product next year, according to a report published on its website.

The eastern European country will require an “adjustment of at least 0.5 percent of GDP” next year to cut its budget deficit from a targeted shortfall of 4.4 percent of GDP this year, the Washington-based institution said.

International market conditions might also “impede” Romania’s asset-sale plan for this year and next and the government might have to take alternative actions to improve operations in its companies, the IMF said.
