2021 Budget Process begins

On 23 July 2020, La'o Hamutuk wrote a letter(Tetum) to Members of the the Parliamentary Committees on Public Finances (C) and Economic Development (D), pointing out that Bayu-Undan production is ending and the global economy is unstable, and encouraging them to cancel the Tasi Mane project and invest in sectors which will benefit Timor-Leste's people, as we had described in a letter to Government Economic Recovery Committee Chair Rui Gomes.

Parliament will be in recess from the end of July until mid-September.  Before the recess, the Ministry of Finance announced the calendar at right for enactment of the 2020 and 2021 State Budgets.

In August, the Ministry of Finance released a policy paper on Fiscal Rules, together with a presentation about it.

On 4 August, the Government organized a Jornada Orsamental (Budget Day) seminar on the 2021 State Budget, as announced by the President's office and Tatoli. Although the media was asked to leave after the Prime Minister's opening speech, La'o Hamutuk and other CSOs were allowed to stay for the whole seminar.

In addition to a presentation on the plan for economic recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic, the Ministry of Finance made a 120-slide Tetum presentation outlining the Government's objectives, programs and priorities; evaluating development and fiscal performance to date; and describing fiscal rules and scenarios.

The Covid-19 Economic Recovery Plan (Port.) was released a few weeks later. It anticipates minimum state budgets of $1.7 billion in 2021, and $1.6 billion/year in 2022-2023.
