Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit will present an over $990m tax- free budget to Parliament this morning.

The Prime Minister says the 2021/2022 budget should be welcomed and applauded by all Dominicans.

“We have as a government gradually reduced taxation in Dominica,” he said, “and we have been able to implement a number of policies and programs and projects without imposing any new taxes on our people”.

According to the Prime Minister, this morning citizens can listen for new concessions given to various sectors of the economy, as “There are a number of things in the budget that will benefit people”.
