The development expenditure of civil ministries and government units amounted to RO 252 million, representing 23% of total development expenditure of RO 1.100 billion allocated for 2022. Current expenditure of civil ministries and government units reached a total of RO 1.278 billion, remaining at the same level as at the end of April 2021.

The Ministry of Finance affirmed that the surplus will be utilized to strengthen economic recovery by increasing spending on priority development projects and reducing public debt.
