He noted that the fiscal deficit exceeded 7% of GDP in 2020, and is expected to close 2021 at 4% of GDP. Cueva also raised the possibility that the deficit could be slashed to 2.5% of GDP by the end of next year if the national assembly approves a series of tax, labour, and investment reforms proposed by the government.
