FI­NANCE and Eco­nomic De­vel­op­ment Min­is­ter Pa­trick Chi­na­masa will present the 2017 Na­tional Bud­get state­ment to Par­lia­ment on December 8.

In a state­ment yes­ter­day, Trea­sury said the theme of the 2017 bud­get is “Push­ing the Fron­ti­etrs of Pro­duc­tion” in keeping with the Gov­ern­ment’s pol­icy thrust to in­crease pro­duc­tion and pro­duc­tiv­ity in on-go­ing ef­forts to re­vive the econ­omy.

Coun­try­wide con­sul­ta­tions on the 2017 na­tional bud­get were held in Septem­ber and Par­lia­ment met from Novem­ber 2-6 in Bu­l­awayo for the pre-bud­get sem­i­nar. Pre­sen­ta­tions by line min­istries were made to Par­lia­ment lay­ing out pri­or­ity ar­eas that are ex­pected to get prime fo­cus.
