FULL STATEMENT

2019 NATIONAL BUDGET TO BE PRESENTED ON FRIDAY, 28th SEPTEMBER, 2018

The Ministry of Finance has announced that Honourable Margaret Mwanakatwe, MP, will present the 2019 National Budget on Friday, 28th September, 2018.

Over the last four (4) months, the Ministry of Finance has been conducting budget consultations and facilitating policy dialogue with all stakeholders and the general public throughout the country.

To ensure that broad consultations with stakeholders were attained, the Ministry held Provincial Consultative Meetings at which members of the general public, private sector, civil society, and other non-state actors were invited to make proposals on tax, non-tax and other developmental and fiscal policy proposals for consideration in the process of formulating the 2019 Budget.

The budget formulation process is now in the final stages.

The expenditure estimates and revenue measures for the 2019 National Budget are being refined and the Minister of Finance will be ready to present the budget next week on Friday, 28th September, 2018.

    Please consider much on education.A country without educated men and women its dead and there can’t be development.

    • Mary libando

      It is because of poor budgeting and impletation that the country is going through this big crisis, education has been underestimsted and by so doing we are having poor development, one of the importances of education is basically for our own country’s development. Please make sure that our education is well budgeted for and please don’t just budget let us see the results of the budget…

  24. FGM

    Last year the budget in General Education had a provision for sanitary towels for school girls. Who benefited from that allocation? Budget implementation in Zambia is a problem!!

  25. RABSON MWALE

    Budget will definitely ‘ve a lot of claws of Donar funding say for they want to monitor their cash flow. African mismanagement reigns in the Vein. For there’re no checks and balances in the Financial aspects.
    One white man boasted once in a night club as he quenched his throat @ his usual watering hole @ a counter to say he wished to be Minister of Finance in ZAMBIA. WHERE he’d enjoy No checks and balances.
    And anywhere who can demonstrate for the poor, for fear of incarceration. Comment

    Trouble with Zambian budget is that it is not wholely funded by one wing of Govt. External funders would want it driven their way and monitor it thus.
    One white man once commented in a club that he’d like to be Minister of Finance in Zambia because there were no checks and balances regarding state funds.
    This was @ a time a Minister of Finance had been shown the exit for fraudulent activities.Comment

  33. mind your own business

    Hope you don’t forget me on that budget right

  34. Afrobird

    I pray that a large percentage share goes to production, & Education…
