2011 East Timor budget documents available on-line
On 15 November, the Government presented copies of a six-volume set of budget books to Parliament, some in Portuguese and some in English, with their proposal for a $985 million General State Budget for the coming year. Although the Ministry of Finance refuses to provide electronic copies, La'o Hamutuk has scanned the budget law and the Explanatory Note, translated them to English and posted them to our website. We have also scanned and posted English versions of the Executive Summary and the Expenditures, Revenue and Financing chapters of Book 1, and we will post more in the next few days.
The documents are available at http://www.laohamutuk.org/econ/OGE11/10OJE2011.htm
