Iran Budget Deficit Growth Slows

The Iranian government's balance sheet for the last fiscal year (March 2017-18) shows major improvement compared to the preceding year, as revenues got a boost in line with curbs on spending.
Its overall revenues in the 12 months amounted to 483.7 trillion rials ($11.17 billion), posting a rise of 35.8% year-on-year, while its spending hit 753.7 trillion rials ($17.41 billion) to register a 23.2% growth YOY.   
This is while CBI's previous budgetary report for the 11 months to Feb. 19 saw revenues posting a rise of 23.2%, while spending had a 30.1% growth year-on-year.   
The latest reported deficit of 270 trillion rials ($6.23 billion) also came in narrower than the budget law’s forecast of 321.4 trillion rials ($7.42 billion).
