2 Considering Budget Submissions

Budget Review Committee Meets

After budget submissions are prepared, the Budget Review Committee meets in July and August. It reviews each budget submission and invites ministries to defend and give a good reason for each submission.

Budget Review Committee consists of the Prime Minister, the Minister of Finance, and a few other senior ministers, as invited by the Prime Minister.

Proposed Budget is Formed

After all ministries have presented their submission, the Budget Review Committee forms a proposed budget for the full Council of Ministers to consider. This usually involves prioritising and choosing the most worthwhile initiatives within the constraints of the budget.
