In recent years, governments in many regions have introduced public expenditure management reforms aimed at improving the consistency and impact of fiscal policies. Central European countries and the Baltic States have been amongst those that have introduced program and performance budgeting and medium term expenditure frameworks. This study examines closely the experiences of six of these countries and draws conclusions on what constitutes the more effective reform strategies under different economic, political and institutional conditions.Available at: www.siteresources.worldbank.org/INTECA/Resources/WBperformanceBudgetingTEF.pdf
