Aoun: Corruption, Expenditures and Revenues Will be Controlled
President Michel Aoun stressed on Thursday that measures to combat corruption and control expenditures and revenues will be taken.
During a meeting he held with economic bodies at the Baabda Palace, Aoun stressed that “measures to control revenues, expenditures and combating corruption will be taken. There will be no turning back,” he said.
Aoun stressed that the “State is in the process of preparing an economic plan that gives the production sectors an important role.”
He pointed out that “there is a positive change in the balance of payments,” explaining that the “tourism season was successful and incomes have increased through the customs fees.”
Expenditure control is an important element of budget execution and financial resources management accountability system.
The Lebanese government has not approved a state budget since 2005 .
