MoF schools Journalists on 2019 Budget
November 20, 2018
The Ministry of Finance, Monday, held a technical engagement with Financial and Parliamentary Journalists on the 2019 Budget Statement and Economic Policy, with a view to empowering them to better inform their various audiences on its components.
The engagement is an annual joint effort between the Ministry of Finance, the Institute of Financial and Economic Journalists (IFEJ) and the Parliamentary Press Corps.
Mr. Rayborn Bulley, President of IFEJ, said it was important for Journalists, beyond the reading of the Budget Statement in Parliament, to thoroughly peruse the document and to ensure they interrogated the issues raised.
He said this was even more important following the approval by Parliament of the Budget Document.
