After the presentation, queries such as; - How is the budget allocated across different expenditure categories (e.g., education, healthcare, infrastructure)?
- How much funding is allocated to specific programs or projects within the Assembly's jurisdiction?

- How does the actual expenditure and revenue compare to the budgeted figures?
- What are the primary sources of revenue for the Assembly (e.g., taxes, grants)?
- Is the Assembly's budget process transparent, and are financial reports readily available to the public?

Each Assembly was tasked to undertake the necessary remedial and amendment action. The panel commended the participants of the Assemblies for a good work done by adopting the issued guidelines in preparing 2024 Composite Budget.

The programme ended at 3:30pm with closing remarks from the representative of the Ministry of Finance.
