«Initially, we had a different plan for execution of the budget revenues. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we had to make certain adjustments to it. According to the results of 7 months of this year, there is a lag. At the same time, I would like to stress that since July there has been a dynamic of improvement in budget implementation indicators.

«The main burden of replenishing the republican budget lies on the tax and customs services. It is important to step up efforts to prevent the import of undeclared goods and fuels and lubricants. It is also necessary to accelerate the work on implementation of the fiscalization system and ASICUDA. Certain types of economic activities that do not pose a threat of mass infection of people must resume their work. At the same time, it is important to open Torugart checkpoint, through which 65 percent of the cargo traffic passes. It is necessary to speed up the work with the Chinese side on the approval of the algorithm for the import / export of goods,» Kubatbek Boronov said.
