The Ministry of Finance has announced that the national budget will be presented to the National Assembly on Monday, 16th January by Finance Minister Dr. Ashni Singh.
According to the Finance Ministry, the Minister has been consulting with a number of stakeholders over the past few months as part of his budget preparations.
The Ministry said this year’s Budget is expected to see critical development programmes for Government being fast-tracked and expansion of development works to reflect the Government’s transformational agenda for the country.
This year’s budget will be the fourth Budget presented by the current administration and the third by Dr. Singh since he took up the Finance portfolio under the present administration.
Last year’s budget was also doubled the size of the previous year’s budget and the government still sought additional funding through supplementary budget, including one that was presented weeks before the end of the Financial year.
