Bailed-out Portugal will put forward new spending cuts demanded by its creditors in a draft budget for 2014 today which risks deepening discontent over austerity measures. Portugal, which is trying to regain full access to debt markets with the end of a three-year 78-billion-euro (106 billion USD) rescue plan in June 2014, has vowed to bring its deficit down to 4.0 percent of output next year from 5.5 percent in 2013.
