Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit said while the 2011/2012 national budget will be presented on the heels of a global financial crisis, governments’ safety net will not be affected.
The 2011/2012 national budget will be presented in Parliament on June 29.
“It will take into consideration the present global and regional economic challenges affecting the member states including Dominica. It will also be taking into consideration, many of the projects and programs which government will continue to implement and the new projects like the geothermal one,” he said.
Skerrit said several other social programs will also be continued in the 2011/12 budget. Such programs include the Yes We Care and village transportation schemes.
