1 Min Read

MADRID, Nov 21 (Reuters) - Spain's Treasury Secretary Marta Fernandez Curras said there was room in the state budget for a pension hike to take into account rising inflation this year.

Curras said pensions were considered, by definition, an open-ended budget item because of the effect of consumer prices.

She also said Spain was on track to meeting its budget targets.
