According to the State Audit, in 2018, the state budget deficit is estimated at nearly 9 billion dollar (equivalent to 3.67% of GDP of the same year). The excessive revenue came primarily from unstable sources (land and raw oil) and half of localities got budget deficits. So far, the Draft State budget 2019 has been submitted to the National Assembly by the Government, which is based on the results of the State Budget 2018 implementation. Such situation above raises questions on feasibility of the 2019 budget revenue and allocation plan as well as effectiveness of budget allocation. In this context, relevant comments, constructive contributions or effective proposals from the public and experts for the Draft State Budget 2019 will be highly evaluated, which may a good input to the consideration of State budget allocation and balance.
