MPs to debate next year’s budget bill as of Monday

MNA – Members of the Iranian’s Parliament will commence debate over the government’s proposed budget bill for the next Iranian fiscal year 1399 (beginning on March 21, 2020) on Monday.

On December 8, President Hassan Rouhani submitted the Budget Bill for the next Iranian year of 1399 (to start on March 20, 2020) to the Parliament in the presence of Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani and legislators.

Head of Plan and Budget Organization Mohammad Bagher Nobakh said in early October that “we can say next year’s budget does not rely on oil revenues and we will not spend even one Rial of oil income on the current operating budget neither on the expenditures. Oil revenues will only be consumed on purchasing capital assets and funding development projects.”
