IMF: Government Fiscal Package Goes Too Far?


According to Spilimbergo, "Slovenia needs to undertake additional fiscal adjustment over the medium term point to contain rising public debt and contingent liabilities and to calm unsettled financial markets."

However, the planned measures of the stability and reform programmes go beyond this, Spilimbergo stressed.
