Presentation of the National Budget 2017/2018 on 8th June 2017
The Prime Minister will present the National Budget 2017/2018 on Thursday 8th June 2017.
The budget will be anchored in Government’s Vision 2030 with a thrust on the unfolding of the New Era of Development. However, events on the international scene will have a bearing on its orientation, for instance policy changes in the US and elections in Europe, while the resurgence of protectionism seems to aggravate uncertainties for the global economy. Brexit constitutes a major uncertainty. Moreover, rising oil prices would exert significant pressure on the domestic economy, in particular on the balance of payments and price level.
We are pleased to inform our valued investors that the Budget Speech 2017/2018 will be available on www.investmauritius.com on 8th June 2017. The Board of Investment will also release a special issue of its e-newsletter following the presentation of the budget by Honourable Pravind Kumar Jugnauth.
