WINDHOEK: Finance Minister Saara Kuugongelwa-Amadhila will table the national budget in the National Assembly on Thursday.
An official from the Ministry of Finance confirmed to Nampa today that the 2013/2014 National Budget will be tabled this week.
Since independence, the budget was mostly tabled during March every year.
This is, however, the second time that the budget would be tabled in February.
The government last year decided to table the National Budget earlier – on 28 February – so that it could be approved earlier for effective implementation.
Namibia’s 2012/2013 national budget was geared towards poverty reduction, enhancing domestic economic development, improving service delivery and accelerating job-creation.
