"Public finances represent people's money, so we're interested in receiving suggestions from people that will help develop a more responsible attitude vis-a-vis the spending of money," the ministry stated.

Public finance expenditures are budgeted at nearly €27 billion in 2011, said ministry spokesman Martin Jaroš. The sum is made up of numerous smaller-scale items where savings can be made thanks to more efficient management. According to Finance Minister Ivan Mikloš, entrepreneurs and the public are aware of specific areas where savings are possible, but to date they have not been given a chance to have input in this sphere.
