The National Budget is the key instrument through which Government implements its policies. The National
Budget Framework Paper (BFP) provides the link between Government’s overall policies and the Annual Budget.
It lays out the fiscal policy framework and strategy for the budget year and sets out how the Government intends
to achieve its policy objectives over the medium term through the budget. The macroeconomic framework
presented in the BFP forms the basis for resource projections and indicative expenditure allocations. It also forms
the basis for the detailed estimates of revenue and expenditure which will be laid before Parliament. Download a full document here>>>FY 2016-17 National Budget Framework Paper (NBFP)
