Public investment rise by ALL 3.8 bln in 2017
Public attention is increasingly focused on public investment, especially when the budget year corresponds to an election year, as it is the case with 2017.
But compared to previous years, where there was an investment shortfall, it seems that the beginning of this year has been comparatively more auspicious.
Thus, referring to the data released by the Ministry of Finance, capital expenditures for the fourth quarter of 2017 have been realized at about ALL 14.4 billion.
Compared with the same period of 2016, the investments are about 3.8 billion more.
While considering these data, we can discern two points: either there is a good management of public finances, or the election year has imposed a rigid efficiency on public investments.
According to the data, expenditures for investments from domestic funds amount to ALL 10.8 billion while those with foreign funding amount to ALL 3.6 billion.
But in the same period of last year, this item accounted for ALL 6.2 billion in domestically financed investment and 4.3 billion in foreign funding.
Referring to the same sources, the total expenditure of the state budget for the period of four months reached a value of ALL 128.2 billion, of which ALL 114 billion is recurrent expenditure, or otherwise known as operating expenses.
