A round table was held on 1 June at the Higher School of Economics, devoted to Moscow’s Open Budget. Officials, experts and representatives of public organisations all gathered to discuss problems of information openness.
Opening the round table, director of the HSE’s Institute for Public and Municipal Management Andrey KLIMENKO remarked that, in economic terms, the budget performs a critical information function and market agents can and should make rational decisions, relying on budget data. If they do not have enough of this information, they will find it hard to determine their policy and the way they should conduct themselves on the market, especially when making long-term or medium-term plans. In this respect, an open budget is important because it reflects the key parameters and the key preferences of the authorities and business may ‘tune its conduct in line with the expenditure outlines that the government specifies for itself.’
