SKOPJE, April 29, 2020—Amid a global pandemic that is forcing governments around the world to launch new spending measures, the International Budget Partnership’s (IBP) latest Open Budget Survey-OBS shows that four out of five of the 117 governments assessed failed to reach the minimum threshold for adequate budget transparency and oversight, under international standards.


NORTH MACEDONIA has made improvements in publishing key information that can help the public understand budget policies, decisions, and outcomes, according to the new report. In comparison, worldwide, one-third of the eight key budget documents that governments should publish are not available to the public.
