Swiss revise down 2019 budget surplus estimate to 2.6 bln Sfr

Oct 30 (Reuters) - The Swiss government has revised down its 2019 budget surplus estimate, it said on Wednesday, as the country's economic growth has slowed down.

The federal government now projects a surplus of 2.6 billion Swiss francs ($2.62 billion) - about 200 million francs lower than projected in June - on factors including lower sales tax revenues, the government added.
