“For example, the primary deficit by the end of 2022 was 4.3% of GDP. By the end of 2023, the primary deficit had reduced to just 0.3% which is about 4 percentage point decline in the primary deficit. We are expecting to end this year with a surplus of 0.5% of GDP and then next year to 1.5% of GDP.”

“And so Progress is good, recovery is strong, and we are heading very quickly to stabilisation which is what we need to generate growth,” he stated.
