2017 Budget

Mr. Speaker, members of this Honourable House, I rise in support of budget 2017…and to recognize its truly transformational approach to the growth and development of Guyana. Mr. Speaker these last few days the discussions in this honourable house have been strong on the shouts of taxes and more taxes and I note the deliberate exclusion by all on the other side so far in mentioning even one of the exciting transformational projects in this budget as testimony of the level of debate coming from the other side.
