Expenditures on social protection and social welfare make AZN 2,698,800,000 in the revised state budget for 2016. Though total expenditures of the state budget rose 13.7% compared to previous years, the increase in this field makes 42.3%. It means that social protection remains as a priority of the state.
Chairman of the Committee on social policy of the Parliament of Azerbaijan Hadi Rajabli made the remarks at today’s meeting of the Committee.
The head of state has submitted a bill to the Azerbaijani Parliament regarding amendments to the state budget for 2016 due to the fall in manat rate and sharp drop in oil prices on the world market. “This bill is focused on Azerbaijani citizens, their social protection, despite global economic situation and the country's limited budgetary resources,” he said.
