Medina puts damper on spending for his ministers
President Danilo Medina surprised his ministers and officials yesterday, Thursday 15 May, by issuing a memo that prohibits high-ranking officials from purchasing vehicles, remodeling their offices and purchasing equipment. The memo, which was signed by the Administrative Minister for the Presidency, Gustavo Montalvo, also limits travel overseas to just two people with prior approval from the ministry. The memo adds that this is the continuation of the government spending rationalization process. The PLD governments have been ranked tops in the world for wasteful spending by the World Economic Forum Global Competitiveness Report.
