An official at the USRB Permanent Committee has told Itar-Tass that a large number of matters brought up for consideration concern trade-and-economic cooperation between the two countries. Those present at the session will consider a report on the 2011 USRB budget performance. The budget was fulfilled 100.8 percent in revenue and 95.1 percent in expenditure.
Participants in the session are also to consider demand-and-supply balances for 28 major types of products and a balance of fuel-and-energy resources of the USRB for 2012.
The USRB property issue is currently regarded as one of the most complex and not completely settled matters in the USRB development process. Session participants are to examine draft regulations for arrangements for and techniqes of assessment of property acquired at the expense of USRB budget resources, of the property transferred by the member-states to the ownership of the USRB and of other property that came into USRB possession. Analysts at the USRB Permanent Committee are of the opinion that adoption of the document "will make it possible to review the results of implementation of USRB programmes with a view to further shaping the revenue part of the USRB budget".
