The Prime Minister and Finance Minister of the Caribbean territory Saint Kitts and Nevis, Timothy Harris, has said the 2016 Budget will be fiscally prudent and responsible.
The Budget will be the first since the Team Unity alliance was elected. It said the Budget will take on board the views of the public, after recent consultations.
Harris said: "We have gone through a process of consultation – national consultation on the Budget. That in itself is not new, but what was new about it was that we had more inputs than ever before in the period of consultation with respect to the Budget and that we gave a lot more socio-economic partners an opportunity to participate in budget making."
"The Budget is clothed in accountability and in an accountability framework. That is why from day one we postulated that this Budget will not be a deficit one, that as part of the fiscal prudence and fiscal responsibility it is important for us as a Government to live within our means."
