The Plan and Budget Organization held the first meeting of the so-called Headquarters for the Fiscal 2021-22 Budget on Saturday evening. 
PBO chief, Mohammad Baqer Nobakht, and other senior officials of the organization attended the meeting. 
Discussions centered on the composition of the headquarters, the Joint Commission—a parliamentary body responsible for reviewing the budget bill as well as the five-year economic development plans—and eight specialized taskforces. 
These meetings will be held regularly up until Budget Day (the day government presents its budget to the legislature for approval), i.e. Dec. 2, Mporg.ir reported.
