The draft budget now provides for a net borrowing of EUR 179.82 billion, announced members of the Bundestag budget committee.

For this, the debt brake in the Basic Law must be overridden. The permissible new borrowing will be exceeded by EUR 164.2 billion.

The Ministry of Finance recently said that the new debt this year will be between EUR 160 and 170 billion.
