Noted that the government increased the base price of oil from USD 50 to USD 85 per barrel. As a result, tax revenues from oil companies are predicted to be higher. An increase in tax revenues is also expected due to the increase in activity in the non-energy sector.
A 9.4% reduction in transfers from the State Oil Fund of Azerbaijan is planned against the background of revenue growth.
Noted in the report that budget expenditures increased by 8,1%. More than half of the increase in expenditures will go to public investments related to reconstruction, and the rest to defense, social protection, and food security measures.
