An “ongoing commitment” to supporting the “hardworking people of Bermuda” will be the focus of the Budget to be announced next month, the Premier and minister of finance said today.

David Burt will present his statement to the House of Assembly on February 17.

He said: “The dedicated Ministry of Finance team and I have been working on the 2023-2024 Budget for several months,

“This Budget will outline our continuing path towards economic recovery and focus on our ongoing commitment to providing relief to the hardworking people of Bermuda.”

The statement will lay out allocated funds for each government department.

It will be followed a week later by the One Bermuda Alliance Opposition’s formal Budget reply and a general economic debate.

A government spokeswoman said: "Thereafter the House and then the Senate will consider various departments, debating the estimates of revenue and expenditure in a debate schedule determined by the Opposition.“
