Like the 2013/14 Budget, the next Budget is expected to prioritise areas that support the second Economic Development Poverty Reduction Strategy (EDPRS II) goals by mainly investing in energy generation, skills development, increasing export base to narrow the current trade deficit and supporting initiatives aimed at promoting a green economy.

Strategies that will promote cross-border trade and regional integration and those that support growth of local industry, as well as policies to expand exports and those that will encourage developers to invest in low-cost housing could be on the cards.
