The planning and budget committee of parliament plans to hold, during the first week of June, its first meeting to study the reports of the specialised qualitative committees regarding the draft budget for the next fiscal year.

Silvia Nabil, member of the committee, said that studying the demands of some sectors is taking place within the framework of redistributing allocations in accordance with the budget's financial resources.
The financial statement issued by the Ministry of Finance showed a deficit of 8.4% and a growth rate of 5.8% in the draft budget for next fiscal year.
The targeted tax revenues during next financial year are at EGP 770bn and other revenues are at about EGP 200bn.

The technical secretariat of the committee was assigned to draft recommendations and send them to the planning and budget committee.
He added that the committee has many observations on the work of economic bodies during the upcoming period to turn losses into profits.
