Its Budget time again!!!

Minister Audley Shaw
Arguably the most anticipated period of the Jamaican Parliamentary year is the reading of the Budget, which brings about anticipation and to an extent fear.

Follow the Gleaner Online to see where and how our country’s money will be spent.

Listen to all the debates, news, videos, audios on the Budget.
