No more taxes!
MINISTER OF FINANCE Chris Sinckler yesterday served up a mixture of bitter medicine and hope under his 2014 economic revival programme.
But he promised “more taxation will not be part of the solution at this time”.
During a wide-ranging media briefing on the economy at Government Headquarters, he also indicated that Government was prepared to negotiate reducing the planned layoff of 3 000 public service workers if viable alternatives emerged.
He said too that people retrenched could find work in a number of major road projects planned for this year. Other projects earmarked for 2014 include an alternative cement plant and a waste-to-energy project.
