Government Budget 45% open

Malawi

What data is expected?

National government budget at a high level, that is the planned government expenditure for the upcoming year, and not the actual expenditure. Open budget data allows for well-informed publics: showing where money is spent on, how public funds develop over time, and why certain activities are funded. We recommend that you consult our methodology section for more information.

  • Budget per government department
  • Budget per sub-department
  • Descriptions for budget sections

How open is the data?

Added another document: namely the draft budget 2016-2017. Hence, not the full approved budget. Therefore, I have indicated that the data is not up to date (only a previous draft of the budget available).
