According to a report, considered and approved by Economy and Finance Commissions of the Constitutional and Legal Matters of the National Assembly, Angola’s 2015 General State Budget recorded a 456.40 billion kwanza deficit.
In that financial year, the Government had estimated budget revenue at more than 5 Trillion kwanzas, however, it received only 3.9 trillion.
The reason is believed to be the incurred expenses worth 4.39 trillion kwanza which resulted in the budget deficit.

With 15 votes in favour and 1 vote against, the State Fiscal Year 2015 General Account was approved for Specialized Work by Joint Commission. It will be submitted to National Assembly Plenary.
