The substantial expenditure to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic and the simultaneous decline in GDP caused the expenditure ratio to climb to 12.5% in 2020. In the 2022 budget, the budgetary position is expected to return to normal. Expenditure is down 4.8% on the previous year's budget, while the economy will gradually recover from the crisis and will probably grow by 3.8% in nominal terms. The expenditure ratio (budget in % of GDP) will thus fall to 10.3% in 2022. The expenditure ratio for subsequent years is 10.1%, thereby approaching the pre-crisis level of 9.8% (2019) again.
