THE HAGUE – Finance Minister Wouter Bos expects the cabinet to close 2007 with a budget surplus. Until now a deficit of 0.2 percent of the gross national product was expected.
Bos said this on Tuesday on RTLZ, in the first of a series of weekly discussions. The minister said that "the counting" is still underway and that he therefore cannot give a more exact figure.
Bos did stress that the picture is looking better than critics over the past few months would have us believe.
