RIGA - Saeima today in the final reading adopted the 2021 government budget, providing that expenditure will be at EUR 10.758 billion and revenue at EUR 9.579 billion.
The budget was adopted with 63 votes to 32.
Adoption of the 2021 budget took historically the longest time. The parliament started work on the budget on November 23, and spent 78 hours hearing it, including breaks in between, and the time allowed for debate had been reduced twice. This is also the first budget adopted partly remotely, using the new e-Saeima platform.
