Conversely, over the first nine-month period of 2018, gross state budget revenues exceeded the target by 591 million euros; and by 1.023 billion euros in terms of regular budget revenues.

In terms of spending, a noteworthy 1.238 billion euros less in public investments was allocated over the Jan-Sep period, than what has been budgeted for the period.
