ASTANA. September 22. KAZINFORM /Muratbek Makulbekov/ Raising budgetary expenses in 2010 by KZT 593 bln is connected with the activities scheduled by the Government for realization of the President's tasks. Vice Minister of Economy and Budget Planning Lena Karmazina has made it public while presenting 2010 National Budget at the sitting of the Majilis Committee for international affairs, defense and security today. The activities provide for raising living standards and prevention of unemployment growth, the Vice Minister informed. Small and medium businesses, agricultural production will be supported too, she added. In response to the deputies' observation on lack of budgetary means for construction of social facilities planned earlier, the Vice Minister said the bill provided for funds only for completion of such projects. This depends on significant budget deficit planned for the upcoming three years - around KZT 700 bln per year. After the discussion the Committee members decided to support draft laws On national budget for 2012 and On guaranteed transfer from the National Fund of Kazakhstan for 2010-2012.
