As discussed previously, the Budget Speech for 2007/2008 was published by Government of Belize on March 2, 2007.

The Report compiled the Plan of Action as regards economic infrastructure, home ownership and quality of life, rural development and poverty elimination, education, youth and sports as well as affordable health care.

The Plan of Action was designed to create fundamental and positive changes in the way people live in Belize as well as to improve our nation’s security and people’s safety as the Plan covers strengthening the capacity of Belize’s security forces – the police and the Belize Defense Force (BDF). It also deals with the necessity of strengthening the system of justice with an independent judiciary under the rule of law.

In his Budget Speech, the Belizean Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, Said Musa, said that Belize’s “horizon has the glow of hope and the promise of a brighter future” and Belize should accept seizing opportunities for innovation and progress as the guiding principles.
