Bélgica, França, Itália e RU enfrentam desafio da dívida

By Ninian Carter

April 29, 2024 - Enquanto muitos países europeus deverão fazer progressos na
contenção dos défices orçamentais, alguns, como a Bélgica, França, Itália e RU, deverão ver a sua dívida continuar a aumentar.

Europe’s most indebted countries are forecast to see debts rise for many years as they face anaemic growth and rising interest rates.

At a time when most European nations – now free from no-limits spending on Covid-19 measures – will make progress reining in deficits, Belgium, France, Italy and the UK are set to see their national debts rise.

A recent forecast to the year 2029, by the International Monetary Fund (IMF), shows the four countries taking on more debt – leaving their governments in the uncomfortable position of having to cut spending even further or increase taxes.

2024 is a sensitive year for Europe, with elections taking place for the European Parliament and a general election in the UK.
