Sinckler:Stimulus package on way
The Opposition may have promised it, but it is the re-elected Freundel Stuart administration that is planning to deliver a stimulus package.
Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler revealed today in the House of Assembly during the first day of debate on the 2013-2014 Estimates of Income and Expenditure that a $600 million stimulus package was on the way to boost the local economy.
Sinckler explained that the Government-led package which would come in the form of capital works projects across a number of Ministries would generate economic activity through construction and other projects.
As a result, at least 1 000 construction jobs would be created. (GE)
