In T&T: Cadiz Promises Value for $ In Tight Budget

30 September 2011

More ‘bang for your buck’ according to Minister Cadiz

Trade and Industry Minister Stephen Cadiz says while the upcoming national budget will be “tight”, citizens can expect to get value for money.

Cadiz said Finance Minister Winston Dookeran has “already indicated that it will be a very tight budget but one thing you are going to see different, the value of the spend is going to be there. This government is going to ensure that every single tax dollar is going to be spent properly and citizens will finally get value for money. We will not be going into tens of millions of dollars of investments— failed investments—and what have you. You will see a tighter budget but value for money.”

The 2011/2012 budget will be presented next month and is expected to be in the $50 billion range.

Cadiz was speaking at a media conference for the close of the Workshop on Promoting Cariforum (Caribbean Forum) Creative Industries at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Port of Spain, on Wednesday.
