Budget Alert 3.3 ‘Government Finances and the Economy’

Written by  Laurel Bain Chairwoman of the Fiscal Responsibility Oversight Committee.

The analysis focuses on the fiscal performance for the first quarter relative to the targeted performance. The financial transactions in 2022 were abnormal due to the receipt of budgetary support of $81M and the payment of approximately $75M in arrears of pension and gratuity. The fiscal performance was favorable compared to what the Government planned, and based on the growth in tourism, the economy continues to expand.
