Considering the fact that a Parliamentary Budget Office (PBO) will bring savings, efficiency and value-for-money, Finance Minister Winston Jordan disclosed that a phased approach will be taken to establish such an office for Guyana.He expressed this sentiment during his 2015 Budget presentation on Monday.Jordan told the National Assembly that there has been a movement, mainly in developing countries, to establish a PBO. He said that in Canada, the PBO supports Parliament in exercising its oversight role in the Government?s stewardship of public funds by ensuring budget transparency and promoting informed public dialogue, with an aim to implement sound economic and fiscal policies in Canada.In Australia,Cheap Stitched Jerseys, the Finance Minister said that the role of the PBO is to inform the Parliament by providing independent and non-partisan analysis of the budget cycle, fiscal policy and the financial implications of proposals.In Guyana?s case,Epic React Flyknit Sneaker, he recalled that Presidential Advisor on Sustainable Development, Dr. Clive Thomas, strongly advocated for the establishment of such an Office.Jordan noted that the Government finds the idea attractive and worthy of pursuing in the medium term.

In fact, it was pioneered by the USA, but the office is one that should be tasked with several important responsibilities?.?It will give Parliamentarians an economic office that will allow them to make demands and test the validity of statistics brought by the government. It will also help them to measure various programmes to be brought from government. The office should be another important aspect of the budget debates and the general discussions of the economy.??But generally, most of our Members of Parliament (MPs) are not well informed on economic matters, whereas the average parliamentarian abroad tends to be more informed simply because their economy is discussed as though it?s a natural thing. So it is going to be empowering for the MPs, particularly those in the opposition,Nike Free Run Shoes Clearance, as they will be able to have this office at their disposal.
