The discussion focused on topical issues related to budget policy.

In January 2000, the government managed to balance the federal budget without borrowings from Russia’s Central Bank, Mr Kasyanov said. The deputy prime minister said that one of the main goals of the government in the first quarter of the year was to concentrate efforts on mini-programmes without external sources of financing.
