According to the newspapers, the Michel government will not be able to improve its structural balance by 0.6% of GDP per year, the European Commission's minimum requirement. Instead of reducing the structural balance by € 2.6 billion in structural measures, the government will only realize € 1.1 billion.
The balance of € 1.5 billion will not qualify as "structural”, as these are essentially technical corrections, one-off receipts and a more favorable outcome than planned. "This is called a deviation of the budgetary forecast," summarizes a source to the newspapers.
