Description

Fiscal transparency will be improved by making available to a wider section of the population additional budgetary information that facilitates the tracking of government expenditures especially on government projects. Towards this goal, budget figures will be rendered more user- friendly, simplified versions of the budget will be produced and widely disseminated, and reports on revenues and expenditures produced and distributed twice within the fiscal year.
Government further commits to collaborate with relevant civil society organizations and encourage the production and dissemination of a citizens’ budget that reflects more broadly the direction of citizens’ aspirations in relation to their national budget. Actions:
• Convene a consultative meeting with all relevant CSOs and private sector on budget presentation format that facilitates effective tracking of expenditures
• Convene forum of Government, private sector organization and CSOs to discuss the production of a simplified version of the budget for popular usage
• Support competent and relevant CSOs to co-ordinate the production of a citizens’ budget on an annual basis
