President Ranil Wickremesinghe, as the finance minister, is due to present the 2023 budget in parliament on November 14.
As per the norm, it will contain plans for the year as well as promises to appease the public.
The video below by Verite Research gives a post-review of what has happened to the previous budgetary promises, especially in 2021.
