Next year EUR 80 mil­lion will be avail­able for pri­or­ity mea­sures of min­istries, said Lat­vian Fi­nance Min­is­ter Dana Reizniece-ozola (Greens/farm­ers) af­ter the ex­tra­or­di­nary gov­ern­ment meet­ing on Mon­day, Au­gust 28.

The Cabi­net of Min­is­ters to­mor­row will dis­cuss de­mands of min­istries that have been es­ti­mated at EUR 600 mil­lion.

Reizniece-ozoal said that min­istries are ready to re­vise their in­ter­nal re­sources. "It is not even about use­less spend­ing, but rather about how pri­or­i­ties change – min­istries re­vised fi­nanc­ing that has been al­lo­cated to sev­eral mea­sures two or three years ago. As a re­sult, min­istries found EUR 60 mil­lion from in­ter­nal re­sources," the min­is­ter said.

She said that fi­nan­cial re­sources were also found in other ways, for ex­am­ple, from events that had been or­ga­nized us­ing lower bud­gets than planned ear­lier. Also, some other events en­sured larger rev­enues than planned, for ex­am­ple, money has been saved from ser­vice of the gov­ern­ment debt, rev­enue from speed­ing fines reg­is­tered with speed cam­eras was higher.
