The Dominica Association of Industry and Commerce (DAIC) is anticipating a reduction in personal income tax when the national budget is presented this month.
Executive Director of the DAIC, Achille Joseph says the chamber also expects to see a focus on training development of the youth and investment in capacity development among others.
“Budgets are always a challenge, not only for government but also for financial organizations, so a lot of people are looking forward to that realistic and timely budget. I think it’s going to focus a lot on things like social issues, capital expenditure; I am going to expect to see investment in training and development of our young people,” he said.
Joseph said he also expects to see some sought of relief for persons who are in the lower level of the economic bracket, persons who are on welfare and persons who are on fixed income.
