Lithuania’s budget revenue exceeded the government’s target in January and February, rising 9.9 percent from a year earlier.
Revenue increased to 3.36 billion litai ($1.28 billion), the Finance Ministry in the capital, Vilnius, said today in an e-mailed statement. That’s above the government’s target of 3.22 billion litai, or 4.4 percent, it said.
The Baltic nation’s government plans to cut the budget deficit to 3 percent of gross domestic product this year from an estimated 5.3 percent in 2011.
