On 21 November 2023, the Council of Ministers approved the proposed Law on the General State Budget for 2024 with a total amount of $1.95 billion. The Government presented the draft Law to Parliament on 24 November, and the Prime Minister requested Parliament to hold an urgent debate. The National Parliament and Government began holding public hearings on the proposed Law on 30 November, which ran until 5 December.
As the budget debate was held in an “urgent” manner, civil society was not granted an opportunity to share its views on the proposed budget. Nonetheless, with this report, Fundasaun Mahein (FM) wishes to share some of its observations which we hope will assist the Deputies of Committee B to make decisions regarding the proposed 2024 State Budget for the defence, security and foreign affairs sectors. In this way, it is hoped that the final budget will reflect the needs of the relevant institutions.
