Thirty-three districts and cities of Azerbaijan will be able to pay their own expenses from their incomes in 2018, said Azerbaijani Deputy Finance Minister Azer Bayramov at a joint meeting of five parliamentary committees to discuss the draft state budget on Nov. 13.
Bayramov said that local revenues of the state budget are forecasted to total 621 million manats in 2018 that is four percent more than the forecast for 2017.
Local expenditures are expected to amount to 424 million manats or three million manats more than in 2017.
