This quarterly report is prepared by the Ministry of Finance. It shows revenues and expenditures during the quarter, in addition to the surplus (or deficit), its funding sources and the public debt. Through the publication of this report, the Ministry of Finance seeks to provide more transparency on the performance of the budget in accordance with global financial disclosure standards. In addition, it is important to note that the budget preparation is under the cash basis of accounting. The  accounts  in  this  report  have  been  classified  according  to  the Government Finance Statistics Manual (GFSM 2014), which is published by the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Furthermore, a glossary attached at the end of the report defines all of these mentioned terms.
