Panama: 2011 Budget is $13 Billion

The ministerial council has approved the state's budget proposal for the 2011 fiscal year.

Wednesday, July 28, 2010

The proposal is 46% capital expenditure, an increase of 4% on 2010 when it was 42%. This is consistent with the Martinelli administration's policy of prioritizing investment over operating costs.

As such, running costs for the 2011 fiscal year make up 54% of the total budget, reflecting a 4% decrease.

The ministerial council also authorized the Economy and Finance Minister, Alberto Vallarino, to present the state budget bill to the National Assembly. Vallarino indicated that he expects to do this on Thursday 29 July in compliance with article 184, number 7 of the country's constitution.
