BIRN, ProConcept Open National Budget Forum

BIRN Serbia and ProConcept will open the fourth annual National Budget Forum in Belgrade on Monday.

The two organisations will hold the forum on Monday, December 3 at 12.30pm in the small hall of the National Parliament.

Participants in this year's forum will examine transparency in the budgeting process and control of budget execution.

Following an introductory debate, which will focus on the main budget policies and challenges that Serbia is likely to face in 2013, the Citizens Budget of the Republic of Serbia will be presented at working tables. Forum participants will then take part in a second debate that will focus on possibilities for greater control of the budget’s execution by the Serbian Parliament Finance Committee.

Senior officials from the Finance Ministry, Fiscal Council and National Parliament will take part in the debates, as well as experts from the community.

This annual event, now in its fourth year, is traditionally the final debate on budget priorities and models for improving the budgeting process.

Simultaneous translation from Serbian to English will be provided by the organisers.
