SULAIMANI — Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) Minister of Finance and Economy Awat Janab sent the draft budget for the Kurdistan Region to the Council of Ministers on Tuesday (May 11).

Officials have been putting together the budget over the last several months and collecting data from the ministries.

Once approved by the full cabinet, it will be sent to the Kurdistan Parliament for debate and passage. It will be the first budget for the Region since 2013.

Critics argue that this has contributed to the KRG’s lack of financial transparency and prevented accountability.

Details of the budget were not immediately released.
