Today is Budget Day in Guyana
THE inaugural budget of the David Granger-led APNU+AFC coalition Government will be read before the National Assembly today, possibly in the presence of the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C).
Entitled ‘A fresh start to the good life in a green economy’, this budget is expected to disclose the prospects and vision of the newly-elected APNU+AFC Administration.
Budget presentations usually last for three hours, depending on the will of the Finance Minister, but Finance Minister Winston Jordan has reassured the Guyana Chronicle that his presentation may not be that lengthy.
The Minister said statements made by him and by Government officials in the lead-up to the budget presentation already reflect the intentions of the new Administration for the upcoming fiscal year.
