– the absolute uncertainty and volatility of the relevant economic data associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, in our country and on a global scale,
– the overcoming of new containment and economic policy measures with still unpredictable impact,
– that the forecasting exercises recently published by other forecasters, some including already part of the effects of the pandemic outbreak, are being rapidly overtaken by events,
the Superior Council of the Portuguese Public Finance Council decided to postpone the publication of its document "Economic and budgetary outlook", for a new date to be announced.
The Public Finance Council will continue to monitor pari passu the development of the macroeconomic and budgetary situation, in order to ensure compliance with its mandate and the quality and credibility of its projections.
