The presentation will cover:

  • Economic Growth and Job Creation;
  • Fiscal Policy Stance and Realism of the Projections;
  • Domestic Revenue Mobilization;
  • Expenditure Control and Rationalization;
  • Infrastructure Development and financing; and
  • Exiting IMF Financial Program and Legislating Fiscal Responsibility.
