Budget 2021 – a focus on wellbeing and social progress key to a fair recovery
Budget 2021 should be socially progressive and promote wellbeing. This is key to a fair and inclusive recovery as we learn to live and work in a Covid-19 world. Budgets represent what a government values and how they intend to meet their objectives. For Budget 2021 to be socially progressive it must ensure that nobody is left behind. While developing a thriving economy is essential, it cannot be delivered without simultaneously working to provide decent services and infrastructure, just taxation, good governance and sustainability.
