El Diario reports on Fundacion Jubileo findings:
Bonanza of Treasury expenses is criticized
The information is registered in the Jubilee magazine that in its publication 37 entitled: “The bonanza passed, the debt goes up and the spending continues”.
According to data from the Ministry of Economy and Finance in 2005, the expenditure on salaries amounted to 7,379 million Bolivians and for this 2018 administration, 38,845 million Bolivians are budgeted.
“The salary and salary budget increased again in 2018 by 7.6% compared to 2017. In the last 13 years, the increase is more than five times,” says the nonprofit organization.
Likewise, it warns that the growth of this expense, if it continues to expand, represents a latent risk of “unsustainability in the future” considering the new income level.
The analysis also addresses current expenditure, which has increased in recent years, registering a maximum in 2015, a decrease in 2016, but again an expansion in 2017 and 2018.
