ministry has said it still aims to keep the deficit target for
next year unchanged.
                
    
    CEE MARKETS: Central European currencies were mixed on

Jerome Powell for indications as to whether the U.S. central
bank will cut rates further.
                
    
    EUROPE POWER: Lower wind power output in Germany and tighter
