Minister of Finance, Ipumbu Shiimi will table his maiden National Budget for the 2020/21 financial year in the National Assembly (NA) next week.
The ministry's spokesperson, Tonateni Shidhudhu, in a media statement, said the ministry has made progress in the preparation of the tabling of the budget.
Given the regulations of the state of emergency, which includes limitations on gatherings, the ministry consulted on how the House would be convened for the tabling of the Appropriation Bill.
Shiimi recently said that the delay was a direct result of the state of emergency declared by President Hage Geingob on 18 March 2020, as a means to curb the spread of the deadly Coronavirus outbreak.
