Monday, October 7 is budget day.
This was announced by Minister of Finance Colm Imbert, who is expected to pilot the budget for the 2020 fiscal year in the House of Representatives.
Imbert’s announcement came as the House resumed sitting after a two-month break.
The 2020 budget is the fifth and is expected to be the final budget of this Government’s term, which ends on September 7, 2020, unless the prime minister avails his party of the three-month extension allowed under the Constitution.
The Prime Minister has indicated that the election would be held when constitutionally due.
This budget is coming at a time when the economy has been stabilised and has returned to very modest growth.
In an exclusive interview with the Express to market the ruling People’s National Movement’s fourth year in office, Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley was asked whether the public can expect goodies in the upcoming budget as the general election is due next year.
