The Portuguese Government has announced its commitment to submit to the Parliament until the end of 2012 draft laws on local public finance and regional public finance. A technical Working Group has been created to propose the new legal instruments.


In this Report, the Portuguese Public Finance Council (CFP), which is represented at the Accompanying Commission branch of this group, aims at providing the public at large and political stakeholders in particular with an updated synthesis of the state of local and regional public finances, together with a set of economic principles that should help framing the subsequent discussion on policy options by citizens and legislators.
