The study aimed at examining the recent trends in government expenditure with respect to those directly aimed at poverty alleviation, economic growth in general, and indirect poverty alleviation and expenditures on general services. The study found no radical change in the allocation to these three types of expenditure over the four-year period 2000-2004. There was, however, some evidence of general services gradually claiming a greater share mainly at the cost of the more growth-oriented public expenditures.
