In an interview with The Sunday Mail, Finance Minister Mthuli Ncube said that the 2019 National Budget would be a balanced budget.
Ncube will present its first budget on Thursday this week. He said the budget would communicate disciplinary messages. Ncube words:
This will be a balanced budget with enough carrots and also a decent stick; but hopefully more carrots than permanent because we want to recreate that confidence, to build trust in the future. We want to ensure that there are enough incentives for the industry and there is also job creation. We want to regulate certain behaviors. We hope that the Budget will communicate disciplined messages. The idea is to persuade the economy when we move to the next level, because we continue with the mantra that we are open to business. We wish to move the economy to upper middle income status so that the Budget will become an instrument of enactment towards achieving that vision, and will continue in the following year and will continue to build the path to the top. The idea is to balance incentives with market discipline, that is what will come out to ensure that there are enough incentives and sufficient character rules so that we remain in the straight and narrow.
