Deloitte 2018 Budget Breakfast Debate

2018 budget stable, consistent: Private sector

During a panel discussion of the Deloitte 2018 Budget Breakfast Debate, it was stated that despite the challenges, there was stability and consistency.

Newcrest PNG Limited country manager, Peter Aitsi, said the stability was due to the non-introduction of new taxes.

“There are no new taxes in there which is great and it’s keeping to their promise that the Government made last year in terms of giving back some confidence to the economy and investors.”

ANZ PNG CEO, Mark Baker, said consistency was shown by the Government to deal with the current economic situation.
