Fiscal Council recommendation: Fiscal policy must include swift actions to limit the fiscal implications of population aging

Demographic aging is one of the key challenges of Slovenian fiscal policy. This is a long-term problem, which, however, calls for an immediate response. Without quick action on demographic aging-related expenditure, the conditions for achieving medium and long-term stability of public finances will be tightened, as it will be necessary to establish a significantly higher structural surplus of public finances in order to ensure the long-term debt sustainability of the general government sector. The current structural deficit at around 1-1.5% of GDP and the general government debt of around 80% of GDP makes for a weak starting point for facing the existing and anticipated burdens of demographic aging.
