The Department of Budget and Management (DBM) released the Budget priorities framework for 2022. No National Expenditure Program (NEP) yet submitted to Congress.
The appropriations are: P4.1T in 2020, P4.5T in 2021, and proposed P5.0T in 2022. Disbursements/spending are actually understated bec they don't include spending by LGUs from local revenues on top of their IRA share.
The macroeconomic assumptions in making the budget proposal, the first 3 of these 6 assumptions look unrealistic and too optimistic, for 2021:
1. GDP, 6-7%; but we still have contraction in Q1, -4.2%.
2. Inflation, 2-4%; but we already have 4.4% Jan-June.
3. Dubai oil, $50-70/barrel; but Jan-July about $65 already.
