End of Year Outcome 2019

The End of Year Outcome Statement for the year 2019 is being presented as an update to the Mid-Year Report of 2019, instead of the usual update to the end of year projections that would have been included in the 2020 National Budget to Parliament, in November 2019, as part of the established annual budget cycle. As is well-known, this did not happen because of the political situation that unfolded, which necessitated the holding of General and Regional Elections before the due date. In light of those developments, Parliament was dissolved on December 30, 2019, resulting in the postponement of the preparation and presentation of the 2020 National Budget to a date to be determined in 2020. Budget 2019 was presented under the theme “Transforming the Economy, Empowering People, Building Sustainable Communities for the Good Life,” and was the second earliest presentation in the post-Independence history of Guyana.
