The Government has announced that the National Budget will be presented this coming Friday.
Senior Minister with Responsibility for Finance in the Office of the President Dr. Ashni Singh in announcing the date said the Government is in the final process of finalizing the budget after completing consultations with various sections of the society.
Minister Singh said Budget 2021 will continue to deliver on the promises and undertakings of the PPP Civic administration and its manifesto.
He said many of the initiatives that were rolled out in last year’s emergency budget will continue and those include measures to tackle the coronavirus pandemic in the country.
Last September, the Government passed a $330 Billion emergency budget. A supplementary budget to the tune of $17 Billion was later passed in December.
