The Portuguese government reported a EUR 3.7 billion deficit in 2016, equivalent to 2 percent of the GDP, a second estimate from the statistical office showed. Figures came well below a 4.4 percent gap in 2015 and a 2.5 percent deficit agreed with the European Union. It was the lowest budget gap of the democracy era and below the 3 percent maximum allowed under EU rules. The narrowing is mainly due to lower capital outlays and higher social security receipts.

On the other hand, public debt increased to 130.4 of the GDP from 129 percent in 2015 but is expected to decline to 128.5 percent in 2017.
