The budget for the next 2022-2023 fiscal year has already finalized. The upcoming budget has been estimated at Tk 6 lakh 78 thousand 64 crore, which is Tk 74,383 crore larger compared to previous fiscal.
Finance Minister AHM Mustafa Kamal will place the budget in the Jatiya Sangsad on Thursday (June 9).
It can be noted that last year, the overall environment of placing the budget was unique as Bangladesh was navigating through the Covid-19 crisis at that time. As the Covid situation has improved, the placement of the budget for 2022-23 will be different than last year.
The Bangladesh government is already under pressure in the current FY due to a number of issues, especially inflation and commodity price hikes in the international market.
