The MTBPS does more than just report finances; it shapes how the country manages its budget. It gives a detailed plan and shares what the National Treasury expects the economy to do. It enables the government to make quick changes to their budgets if there’s an emergency.

One of the primary functions of the MTBPS is to provide an updated view of the country’s economic health.

The MTBPS kickstarts the dialogue between Parliament and the government’s budget. It begins the Budget Review and Recommendations Reports process.
