Austrian Stability Programme

In line with Regulation (EC) No 1466/97, amended by Regulation (EU) No 1175/2011, euro area Member States are required to submit a Stability Programme each year, while other EU Member States must submit a Convergence Programme.

Due to national elections on October 15th, 2017, the Draft Budgetary Plan (DBP) 2018 was compiled under the “no-policy-change” assumption on October 16th, 2017 by the Federal Ministry of Finance. This was supposed to contribute to the coordination within the Economic and Monetary Union (EMU).

This document presents the Federal Governments’ updated DBP for 2018, together with the Austrian Stability Programme (update for 2017 to 2022).

Furthermore, this document presents the national medium-term budgetary plan, which has to be forwarded according to Article 4 of the „Twopack“-regulation 473/2013.

The update of the Austrian Stability Programme for the period 2017 to 2022 as well as the updated DBP for 2018 was approved by the Council of Ministers on March 21st, 2018.
