The financial advisor to the Prime Minister, Mazhar Muhammad Salih, confirmed today, Sunday, that the next year’s budget is not austerity, while indicating that it will focus on implementing investment projects.

Saleh said in a press statement, “The fluctuations of the oil markets and the global economic situation will cast a shadow over the draft general budget for 2022,” noting that “the next budget will focus on implementing a package of government investment projects that are in line with diversifying the economy and achieving sustainability in growth.”

Saleh explained, “The 2022 budget is not austerity, but rather is subject to the principle of consolidation or financial discipline as much as possible, in order to avoid borrowing except for extreme necessities.”

The Ministry of Planning, earlier, reiterated that employee salaries, social protection and other expenses were not affected by the delay in approving the general budget law for the year 2022, while referring to a small committee studying its basics.
