PNU

 

 

The Party of National Unity has observed with concerns that the 2019 national budget is off the rails thus, the need to undertake a holistic mid-year budget review that can conclusively inform comprehensive remedial measures.

 

Party President Highvie Hamududu says the macroeconomic targets set out in 2019 are clearly already missed which must compel the government to go back to the drawing board and re-work the macroeconomic framework.  

 

The opposition leader says the 2019 budget is clearly off track on the economic growth rate, inflation rate, international reserves, fiscal deficit, exchange rate, fiscal arrears, and debt sustainability targets envisioned in the 2019 budget.

 

He says the mid-year budget review has to put the budget back on the rail.
