Budget Proposals for the Fiscal Year 2010-11
To: All Member Publications.
Sub: Budget Proposals for the Fiscal Year 2010-11.
You would recall that for the Federal Budget 2009-10, the APNS had prepared its Budget Proposals which were taken up with the Federal Government for approval.
You would appreciate that we were successful in getting relief as our Budget Proposals were incorporated in the Federal Budget after hectic efforts. In this respect, we acknowledge the gesture of the Federal Government, in particular, the Finance Minister, Mr. Shaukat Tarin and the cooperation extended by APNS members to get the proposals approved and incorporated in the Federal Budget.
The Executive Committee of the APNS at is meeting held on October 15, 2009 had noted that the APNS should start its exercise for preparing its Budget Proposals right from January so that by the end of March, the Proposals are finalized and could be submitted to the Ministry of Finance.
In light of the above decision, we request you to kindly send us your suggestions to be incorporated in the APNS Proposals. Please note that we also intend to form a Committee of member publications to prepare and finalize the Budget Proposals on behalf of APNS. If you are interested to participate in the above Committee, please inform us accordingly.
Please send us your suggestions to the APNS Secretariat within 15 days of the receipt of this communication.
