The national budget for the fiscal year 2009-2010 will be an important event on a number
of counts, particularly in the current national and global contexts. From the national
perspective, it will be the first one by the newly-elected government. Arguably, it will be
inspired by the election manifesto of the leading party of the ruling coalition. It is
expected that the upcoming budget will accord allocations to a select set of commitments
made by Awami League during the run-up to the elections.
