Pre budget Speech - Statement for 2022 National Budget

1.0. Preamble

The New Dawn government will be presenting its first 2022 National Budget on 29th October 2021. We look forward with hope and high expectations for a national budget that recognizes the importance of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and makes significant allocations to areas that directly have a positive impact on the livelihoods of the people, especially the poor and vulnerable. One of the areas worth noting is social security. Social security is a human right. Article 22 of the UN Charter provides that “everyone has the right to social security and is entitled to the progressive realization of the economic, social and cultural rights indispensable for their dignity and the free development of their personality”.
