The National Fiscal Outlook (NFO) presents medium term projections of general government sector finances of the Commonwealth, States and Territories. It has been prepared annually since 1993 by a working group of Commonwealth, State and Territory Treasury officials.

The NFO projections assist the Premiers’ Conference and Loan Council meetings in assessing the appropriateness of the current stance of national fiscal policy. They also enable Loan Council to consider jurisdictions’ nominated Loan Council Allocations in a medium term context.
