Portugal is expected to reach a budget deficit of 4.5% of gross domestic product a year later than planned.
In September 2012, the troika of international lenders, comprising the European Union, the International Monetary Fund and the European Central Bank, agreed to relax the country's austerity targets following their fifth quarterly evaluation of the country's €78 billion worth bailout plan.
