Belize: PM BARROW PRESENTS $1.2 BILLION BUDGET

The Prime Minister said that the work would continue on the UDP’s “fabled infrastructure narrative”

Today was budget presentation day on Independence Hill, and Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, Hon. Dean Barrow, presented his 12th appropriation bill to the House of Representatives under the title “Moving Ahead With Strong and Steady Economic Growth; Expansion of Opportunities for Business and Personal Advance; And Rededication to Basic Social Protection.”

A large chunk of the 1.2 billion dollars allocated for the fiscal year 2019 to 2020, which begins on April 1, will be spent on the government’s continued infrastructural improvement programs for the construction of new bridges and roads around the country.

“How Government spends monies and allocates resources in these upcoming 12 months of the new financial year is driven by one central preoccupation, one sacred mission: to benefit the citizens of our nation, those that inhabit, make their way and organize their lives in our villages and towns and cities and open countryside,” Barrow said in his introduction.
