A budget is one of the government’s most important policies. It is through the budget that the financial means necessary for the realization of the rights of all citizens are allocated. It is used to plan how the government will raise and allocate public finances to meet its policy goals. It outlines proposed expenditure, revenue, borrowings and other transactions for a specified time period.

A Citizens Budget is a document developed by the government exclusively for the public, and it presents the budget in a simpler, less technical format, to build a better understanding of how public finances are managed and used. This understanding is vital for public accountability and increasing inclusive civic participation.

This first edition of the Eastern Province’s Citizens Budget contains the Eastern Province budget 2019 for numerous ministries and their line departments. It is available in English, Sinhalese and Tamil at www.ep.gov.lk
