Plan to reduce budget deficit finalized: Khalil

Finance Minister Ali Hasan Khalil arrives in Baabda, Feb. 2, 2019. (The Daily Star/Mohamad Azakir)

This article was amended on Saturday, April 06 2019

A previous version of this article stated that the passage of the 2019 state budget was held up for 254 days during the Cabinet void. In fact, the draft budget was not submitted to the Cabinet until September, and so it was held up for only part of the void. The Daily Star regrets the error.
