The President announces austerity measures

Leone Lfernandez 4

Yesterday evening, President Leonel Fernández announced that the project of the National General Budget for 2007 raises to 254,698 million RD $. Then the President announced some austerity measures which include the reduction of the public civil servants salaries, among which some will undergo a reduction of 25%. The austerity measures announced by the sovereign, eights in total, will be implemented in order to produce economies for about 17,500 millions RD $, this to achieve the surplus of 3% of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) claimed by the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
Fernández, who spoke to the country through a radio and television channel, explained that the total amount of the budget will be subjected to the consideration of the Congress.
209,777 millions RD $ will be produced by the tributary incomes and the others 46,238 millions RD $ by the external and internal financing concepts.
President Leonel Fernández said that the budget of 2007 will be balanced, what means that the expenses should not exceed the incomes.
He indicated that the resources will be distributed in the following way: first: 65,369 millions RD $ for the payment of the national debt; secondly: 42,067 millions RD $ for the payment of the balances and the salaries; thirdly: 31,444 millions RD $ for the payment of the goods and services; fourthly: 65,188 millions RD $ for the payment of the transfers and bonus; and fifthly: 50,992 millions RD $ for the major expenses.
As for the austerity measures, Fernández explained that during 2007 they will decrease the salaries of the central government civil servants and of the decentralized and autonomous institutions, including the members of the state companies Board of directors.
The reductions will be in a proportion of 10% of the amount of the gross salary for those who have a monthly salary higher than 125,000 RD $; 5% of the amount of the gross salary for those who have a monthly salary higher than 100,000 RD $ and lower than 125,000 RD $; 3% of the amount of the gross salary of those who have a monthly salary higher than 50,900 RD $ and lower than 100,000 RD $, explained Leonel Fernández.
In order to set an example, the President of the Republic will reduce his own salary of 25% during the year 2007, as he said.
It will be forbidden to the Central Government, as well as to the decentralized institutions of the State, to acquire vehicles for their personal use.
He clarified that only the vehicles that are required for the government and the decentralized institutions needs will be exempted from.
