The 2018-2019 National Budget is expected to be announced on June 22 this year.

This was revealed by the Acting Prime Minister and Attorney-General, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, in Parlia­ment yesterday.

He said the confirmed date had been discussed by the Par­liament Business Committee.

“It has been said in the Busi­ness Committee meeting that the budget will be delivered on the 22nd of June this year. We present the Budget as we have said,” Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said.

In relation to the 2018-2019 National Budget consultation, he said, it had been postponed because of the recent natural disasters.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said the consultations reached out to a wide number of people in the Fijian population, similar to the 2017/2018 consultations where a number of submis­sions were captured in the 2017/2018 National Budget.

He said direct submissions had been incorporated into the Budget and a similar process was expected for the 2018/2019 Budget provisions.
