The most financed functions of the 2014 Draft Budget

7 vite mė parė
Compared with the 2013 Budget, there is a general decline in the share of the total funding for almost all functions, except for "other expenses unclassified" that increased with 6.45 % and "environmental protection" with 0.15 %. The increase in " Other expenses unclassified " has come mainly from the inclusion in the draft budget of "arrears" amounting to 35 billion, in which 12 billion are projected for the obligations of infrastructure, 20 billion on tax liabilities and 3 billion are under item "other". This fact expresses a priority for the government to pay arrears to business. Meanwhile, for the first time after a long time, "Social Protection" has declined as the second voice with more funding from the budget.
