Budget Review 2018

We are pleased to provide KPMG’s review of the 2018 PNG National Budget brief.

Government acknowledges that 2018 in particular poses a very ambitious budget, one which signals a major departure from past approaches. The 2018 deficit budget includes deficit financing projections by instrument, and is the first budget under the new 2018-2022 Medium Term Fiscal Strategy.

There are a number of surprises in the 2018 Budget especially in relation to the plans to improve revenue, and if successful this budget may see the beginning of a general turnaround in the economy.

The partner group welcomes any questions you may have and can be contacted as per below details.
