Regarding the State budget expenditure control, according to Mr. Cuong, in 2017, the State Treasury system strictly controlled the recurrent expenditures and ensured the expenditures in accordance with the estimate and approved by competent levels under the law. It did not pay recurrent expenditures which were assigned the estimate for units using budget at the beginning of the year. But as of 30th June 2017, these expenditures had not been allocated or had been allocated but had not been used for implementation of projects; strictly controlled dossiers of the units’ automobile purchases in compliance with the regulations on norms and regime of management and use of automobiles in the State agencies and non-business public units.

With these solutions, the state budget expenditure control via the State Treasury in 2017 has achieved positive results. Specifically, for recurrent expenditures, as of 15th December 2017, the State Treasure system controlled expenditures of VND 746,504 billion, equaling 82% of the yearly estimate.

In which, expenditure allocated from the Government fund reached VND 221,733.9 billion, equal to 72% of the plan, and from other funds reached VND 3,391.3 billion equal to 72.9% of the plan.
