Off budget funds eliminated

Parliament yesterday approved the elimination of nine off-budget funds in 2002 and one in 2003; the move had been urged by the World Bank and IMF who regarded them as a haven for corruption and non-transparent practices. The cut funds include channels for distributing taxpayer money to culture and the environment. Elimination of the funds also removes a major barrier to approval of the 2002 state budget draft.
