At this time, the Ministry of finance has not yet published the 2017 budget online.

Comment reviewer: at the time of the review, the budget for Cameroon 2017 was published. It was published in December 2016, so could still be used for this survey. However it was published very poorly from the governments side, in scanned in PDFs. And the data itself contained very little details.
