Question Please. Oman's 2008 Budget.
By TI3GIB @
Monday, December 31, 2007
I know the proposed budget for 2008 will be approved by (Makki, Sultan ?) in a few days. I've read the contents and even though the numbers do seem a little unsettling in light of growth rates of economies internationally, everything seems to be in lack of order, which is pretty much right. I have a question though, and I do hope that anyone who reads this and has a clue please explain elaborately. It goes like this.
If the government was planning any flat percentage salary raises, shouldn't they be included in the awaiting approval budget of 2008 ? If the answer is no, and such a plan is revised later on in the year, does it get included in the budget when it's applied or do these funds go out of the national reserve ?
The post Guno expenditures. Were they entirely taken from the reserve or were they deducted from oh-seven's budget ? Is there a post year report on 07 that illustrates what happened post Guno ?
Thanks in advance.
P.S. I just realized that the most fitting name for 2007 in Oman is .. Guno Year ?
