These strategies include: Expenditure, Revenue and Debt Management; Public-Private Sector Partnerships; Divestment Policy; Public Enterprise Reform; Incomes and Prices Policy and Financing and Management of the Public Sector Investment Programme. The MTFS targets putting Barbados’ public finances back on a more sustainable footing and ensuring that a balanced budget is achieved by the period 2014/15 and a small fiscal surplus by 2015/16. The coordinator of the Fiscal Strategy is Mr. Patrick McCaskie, Director, Research and Planning Unit. This document was prepared by a Special Team comprising members of The Ministry of Finance, The Ministry of Economic Affairs & the Central Bank of Barbados.
