Lebanon's nine-month public salary expenditures hit $2bn in 2012
- Lebanon: Sunday, February 17 - 2013 at 04:58
Lebanese finance ministry has said the government has paid more in salaries to public sector employees in the first nine months of 2012, compared with the same period a year earlier, The Daily Star has reported. The total of salaries paid to the country's public sector jumped to $2bn up to September 2012, or $241m higher than the same period in 2011, the ministry said. The rise was the result of a government-sanctioned increase in the "cost of living" component of public wages, which was approved for retroactive distribution in September 2012 and covered the period February-August 2012, it said.
