Budget At A Glance 2019

“Budget 2019 has been crafted under the theme, Transforming the Economy, Empowering People, Building Sustainable Communities for the Good Life. It signifies a strategic shift in the trajectory of our development, as we seek to responsibly use the resources from oil and gas to shape our future through investing for growth and creating new industries and jobs. Budget 2019 prioritizes institutional strengthening across sectors, including strengthening public investment management; expanding opportunities for businesses to grow and flourish; and supporting Government’s green economy initiatives while aiming to support the development of the non-oil sector. Diversification is the core of what is required to accomplish these goals and, is even more important in the face of oil, especially to ensure that the non-oil sector flourishes and thrives, such that when Guyana’s petroleum reserves are depleted, the country can stand strong on a foundation that is diversified and resilient. Budget 2019 also zeroes in on the human side of development, with substantial resources dedicated to uplifting health and education, pure water supply and sanitation, driving the decent housing agenda, green energy, improving the drainage and transport networks and youth development, among other areas. All of this will be done in the context of improved macroeconomic fundamentals and sound public finances.”

Hon. Winston Jordan

Minister of Finance

Budget 2019 Speech

Introduction

Mr. Speaker, I rise to move the motion for the approval of the Estimates of the Public Sector and the Budget for the Financial Year 2019, and in doing so, I wish to indicate that Cabinet has recommended that the National Assembly proceed upon this motion, pursuant to Article 171 Paragraph 2 of the Constitution of the Co-operative Republic of Guyana.

Mr. Speaker, it is my distinct honour to be able to deliver Budget 2019, the fifth and penultimate budget of this Administration’s first term in Government. Today presents us with yet another opportunity to highlight our successes and achievements as a Government – a Government that is dedicated to the overall improvement in the quality of life of our people, as represented by a budget that guarantees equality and inclusivity in resource allocation for all Guyanese. Also, Mr. Speaker, this budget is the third to be presented to this House before the start of the Financial Year. The benefits of these early presentations have been evident in the ability of managers to execute their projects and programmes over the twelve month planning horizon, instead of the truncated year that had become the norm in the not too distant past.
