Cyprus 2014 budget deficit to beat bailout target
Monday - 10/21/2013, 4:26am EDT
NICOSIA, Cyprus (AP) - Cyprus' finance minister says the budget deficit next year is forecast to beat the target outlined in the terms of the country's bailout.
Harris Georgiades told lawmakers Monday that tough spending cuts will bring the 2014 budget shortfall to 7 percent of gross domestic product, lower than the 8.25 percent that Cyprus' eurozone partners and the International Monetary Fund have set.
Cyprus was granted in March a 10 billion-euro ($13.68 billion) loan to avoid bankruptcy, but forced uninsured savers in the country's two biggest banks to take major losses on their savings. Authorities also imposed controls on the flow of capital to prevent a bank run.
