Changes to the budget process and structure of expenditure: General government spending review
The review brings an analytical view of the structure and outcomes of Slovak public expenditures. It compares Slovakia's spending relative to the size of the economy for the years 2011-2020 with the countries with the highest quality of life (Smart), those with the most improving quality of life (Tigers) and those which joined the EU together with Slovakia (EU 2004). The review also endeavours to take account of the demographics and other factors that influence the amount of spending regardless of political decisions. The aim of the review is to identify the major areas in which to concentrate budget resources.
