Belgium Reaches Accord on 2012 Budget Savings, Belga Reports

The Belgian government has reached an agreement on additional savings this year to bring its budget deficit within the European Union limit amid a weaker economy, Belga reported.

At a meeting that ended late yesterday, ministers agreed to save 1.8 billion euros ($2.4 billion) and freeze some 650 million euros of expenditures, Belga quoted Premier Elio Di Rupo as saying. The austerity will enable Belgium to reach a deficit goal of 2.8 percent of gross domestic product in 2012, below the EU limit of 3 percent, the newswire said.

Details of the accord will be announced today, according to Belga.
