Budget and Fiscal Policy

Budget and fiscal policy refers to policy decisions on how to collect revenues (taxation and non-taxation) and then spend those resources.  The gap between revenues and expenditures is the budget deficit or surplus. These policy decisions have important implications for PNG’s macro-economic situation.
