The Financial Commission meeting 1/2024 took place at the SAC Chairman Office in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday afternoon, with an address by Chairman of Financial Commission Chairman of the State Administration Council Prime Minister Senior General Min Aung Hlaing.
In his speech, the Senior General disclosed that budget allocation will be increased for education, health, electricity generation, transport, and industrial, agricultural and livestock high schools in the 2024-25 financial year.
He continued that priority must be given to spending costs on the peace and stability of the State, the rule of law and contribution to economic development.
He stressed that Union ministries have to coordinate with regional and state governments to efficiently spend state finance to achieve success in relevant regions through administrative mechanisms and law enforcement bodies.
The Senior General noted that the Union Budget Law and the Region and State Budget Law have been enacted as the financial policy to ensure the success of the economic objectives of the State and national visions.
It is necessary to manufacture mass products in the agriculture, meat and fish sectors. Successful production of agriculture and livestock farms will help increase output not only for local consumption but for export purposes, he added.
