In collaboration with the Parliament of Finland and the Parliamentary Centre, the World Bank Institute (WBI) will organize a workshop on the role of parliament in budget formulation. Hosted by the Parliament of Finland, the objective of the workshop is to empower parliament by: (i) strengthening the capacity of budget committees through enhanced awareness of the budget process and key issues that make for effective scrutiny of the executive draft budget; and (ii) providing an opportunity for parliamentary committees working on the ex-ante phase of the budget process to share knowledge on different and innovate models for establishing parliamentary budget offices as a source of independent budget analysis and research.
