The report was approved by the entity’s government at its regular weekly meeting on April 9. It did not provide a figure for the 2013 budget balance but said fiscal expenditure for the period stood at around BAM 2.0bn (equal to 90% of 2013 plan).

Tax income totaled BAM 1.2bn last year, accounting for a 63% share in total budget revenue. Non-tax revenue stood at BAM 274.4mn, whereas income from borrowing and other receipts amounted to BAM 399mn.
