Budget spending in the January-June period was 33.337 billion euros, down 596 million from targets, but up 530 million from the same period last year due to higher interest payment.

In June, net revenue was 4.619 billion euros, down 1.746 billion from monthly targets, with tax revenue up 7.9% to 4.436 billion euros. Tax returns totaled 682 million, up 127 million from targets and Public Investment Programme revenue was 231 million in June, down 744 million from targets.
