A Brief of the Ministry of Budget and Economic Planning

The Ministry was established due to the need for fiscal stimulus and expansion, economic diversification, policy management and integration in Bayelsa State. Previously, Budget and Economic Planning had been an appendage to other ministerial folio thus it existed as operational departments e.g. Budget Department, Planning Department, and Statistics department in the defunct Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning.
