Government Tables $539.3 Billion Budget

The Government of Jamaica has tabled a National Budget in the amount of $539.3 billion.

This is a 7.7% increase over the $500.7 billion tabled last year.

But in real terms this year’s Budget is likely to be less since inflation, at the end of February was 7.2%, and could pass 8% as at March 31, 2014, which marked the last day of the past fiscal year.
