Description

Since 2011, due to public demand, the Finance Ministry has been publishing budget details in Excel files. Using the information published, the NGO Workshop for Public Information created the Open Budget Website, that allows the budget to be searched and analyzed from different perspectives. The site includes participatory platforms that enable discussion about sections of the budget and participation on social media sites.
