KATHMANDU: Finance Minister Shankar Prasad Koirala has said that preparation of the budget for the coming Fiscal Year 2013/14 has reached the final stage and added that the government would present the budget, which would be acceptable to all sides.
Inaugurating a two-day training organized by the Society of Economic Journalists of Nepal (SEJON) in the Capital on Monday, Minister Koirala said that the government would bring a budget to help run the country for one year.
Stating that economic sector has been hit hard due to three partial budgets unveiled in the past fiscal year, he said the government is due to present details of income and expenditure of the nation this time rather than unveiling partial, full-fledged or election budget .
“The new budget will be based on the third amendment to the constitution,” said the Finance Minister, adding,” The government will focus on election following the budget announcement.”
Finance Minister Koirala said that the Finance Ministry was ready to provide institutional support to enhancing the capacity of journalists and suggested the SEJON to move ahead with programs of professional capacity building. On the occasion, SEJON Chairman, Pradeep Chaulagain, said that SEJON has been sharing diverse views to create favorable industrial environment in the country. He said there was no alternative to bringing a full-fledged budget on time considering the demand for investment-friendly environment by the private sector.
