Summary:

The transparency of budget presentation and the accountability to parliament have been improved. A clear view has been provided of the implementation of the objectives of the previous fiscal year for the central government. An annex to the budget showed cost-sharing contributions, which were previously left out. On the revenue side, more information has been provided on the methodology and assumptions used to estimate tax revenues and on the amounts of tax revenues earmarked for social security funds and local authorities.
