The Czech government passed the 2020 draft budget framework and a medium-term outlook for 2021 and 2022 with the planned 40-billion-crown deficit in all three years, the government's press section said today. The budget priorities for next year are raising pensions and teachers' wages, just like this year. Teachers are to get a rise in 2021 as well. The parental benefit is to go up, the Defence Ministry's spendings are to increase and the number of jobs at the ministries are to be cut by 10 percent.
