On October 1, 2014, Dr. James Knight, U.S. Ambassador to the Republic of Chad, and Mr. Bedoumra Kordje, Minister of Finance and Budget, officially launched a new website for the Ministry of Finance and Budget. The website, financed by the U.S. Embassy in N’Djamena, is part of a partnership designed to promote and support fiscal transparency initiatives. This website will provide budget and fiscal policy information to policy makers and the public and establish greater accountability for public financial management. Ultimately, this website will help improve Chad’s budgetary and fiscal transparency, provide credibility to Chad, and improve external assessments of the country. The website will be available at: http://finances.gouv.td.
