2017 BUDGET SPEECH
06/02/17

Madam Speaker, Honourable Members may recall that the eleventh National Development Plan (NDP 11) was approved by this House in December 2016. Hence, these 2017/2018 budget proposals are the first instalment out of six budgetary outlays for implementing NDP 11, whose theme is “Inclusive Growth for Realisation of Employment Creation and Poverty Eradication”. I wish at this point, Madam Speaker, to reaffirm the Government’s commitment to the principle of national development planning, and to state that this principle has never been violated, contrary to the perception from certain quarters that NDP 10 was at one point suspended.  NDP 10 was instead extended by one year to 31st March 2017, with the approval of this House.
