July 7 (Bloomberg) -- Belgium’s federal government must find an extra 78 million euros ($96 million) for this year’s budget, La Libre reported, citing an interview with Budget Minister Olivier Chastel.

Belgium’s budget deficit is at 2.9 percent of gross domestic product, instead of the planned 2.8 percent, Chastel said. Any new spending must be compensated by savings, he said, according to the newspaper.
