There are other ways and sources to fulfill all announced programs, they are primarily linked with more efficient use of budgetary funds,” Medvedev said at an extended session of the State Council. Moreover, in order to make the economic policy more predictable and enhance budgetary discipline it is necessary to introduce a strict budgetary rule fixing maximum amount of deficit and debt, and procedures for forming and using of the Reserve Fund and the National Welfare Fund.”
“This rule must be in effect beginning from next year,” he stressed.
