Chairman of the Committee Sultanbek Makezhanov in his welcoming speech told the participants about how the powers and duties of the legislature are fulfilled in relation to the budget process.

"The Senate of the Parliament is formed for the most part from representatives of 20 currently available administrative-territorial units of the country. Therefore, in their activities, senators, among other things, represent their region. Knowing the problems of their region, the requests of local residents, the deputies within the framework of their powers, together with representatives of the regions, solve them in the relevant sectoral Ministries and, of course, this concerns the issues of financing," Senator Makezhanov said

During the discussion, Senator Bekbolat Orynbekov drew the attention of IMF representatives to the fact that deputies have the opportunity to directly influence the formation of the republican budget during its consideration in the Senate.
