Asen Vassilev, the nominee for Minister of Finance in the Denkov-Gabriel cabinet, said that if the government is voted in today, work on Budget 2023 will begin tomorrow.

“We will withdraw the current version of the budget and I hope that within 10 days – 2 weeks we will have a version of the budget with a 3% deficit,” he said.

According to Vassilev, the prospect of Bulgaria joining the Eurozone in 2025 is still realistic. He added that shrinking the deficit to 3 percent could happen with changes in revenue and spending policies.
