09/06 EC, IMF officials confirm gov t commitment to 3.8pc deficit target in 2010

<p>Brussels, June 9 (MTI) - The European Commission confirmed after concluding a three-day visit to Budapest on Wednesday that Hungary s new centre-right government is committed to this year s budget deficit target of 3.8 percent of gross domestic product (GDP).</p>

The Commission, working closely with representatives of the International Monetary Fund, came to Hungary to hold unofficial talks with the new government, which set up on May 29. Matthias Mors and Barbara Kauffmann, members of the delegation, said they welcomed the government s commitment to the target and its readiness to implement reforms to maintain the goal.

    The IMF "welcomes the (Hungarian) authorities’ commitment to the fiscal target of 3.8 percent of GDP for 2010 agreed under the IMF-EU supported program, and their intention to implement corrective measures as needed," it said in a statement.

    The IMF is scheduled to next visit Hungary in July.

    Hungary has received three payments from a 6.5 billion euro standby credit line from the European Commission. The first two payments of two billion euros each were transferred in December 2008 and March 2009, while a further 1.5 billion euros came through in July 2009. Hungary decided not to draw on the remaining 1 billion euros as its financing conditions on markets improved. The agreement expires on November 3, 2010.
