At the 39th special session held on Friday, the Government of the Republika Srpska (RS) approved the Budget Proposal of the RS for 2023.
Namely, the budget framework is 5 billion and 383 million BAM, which represents an increase of 19.4 percent compared to the II budget rebalancing for 2022.
This proposal also increases the budget of the President of the RS from this year’s 10.8 million BAM to 56.5 million BAM.
The most significant increase in the President’s budget refers to expenditures based on the use of goods and services, which increased from 7.2 million BAM to 52.6 million BAM.
The RS budget proposal states:
“Expenditures based on the use of goods and services are planned in accordance with the policies of saving and limiting non-productive consumption, while care was taken not to jeopardize the functioning and work of budget users when carrying out activities from their departmental competence. The increase in this group of expenses is to the greatest extent the result of the planning of funds for the realization of the project of support for humanitarian and socially useful actions and the patronage and support project for the construction, adaptation and equipping of facilities for children and youth, as well as the increase of expenditures for professional services”.
