What’s in 2019 budget?

MARGARET Mwanakatwe.

CYNTHIA MWALE, Lusaka
MINISTER of Finance Margaret Mwanakatwe today presents the eagerly-anticipated 2019 national budget that is expected to keep Zambia on a positive economic trajectory and on a path to attaining middle-income status by 2030.
It will be Mrs Mwanakatwe’s maiden budget presentation – the first woman after Edith Nawakwi – and she is expected to chip the budget from the Seventh National Development Plan.
Undeniably, she is expected to unveil a string of financial measures drafted to boost Zambia’s economy amid austerity measures and debt concerns.
But to attain a strong growth momentum, Government will have to continue on its focus of industrialisation and the diversification agenda to create the much-needed jobs and wealth for the country in line with the 7NDP without leaving anyone behind.http://epaper.daily-mail.co.zm/
