Barbados finance managers get trained on proper budgeting

The budgeting process is set to greatly improve in Barbados as a result of Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean training for public finance managers on public expenditure reviews.
That’s according to Seibert Frederick, permanent secretary in the Barbados ministry of economic affairs.

Speaking at the high-level briefing that concluded the training workshop, Mr. Frederick emphasized the value and potential of the techniques imparted, in bolstering the efficiency of the budgeting exercise, and noted that the training would have definitely benefitted permanent secretaries.

During the workshop, 16 representatives from the ministries of finance, education, health, agriculture and social care were trained in the conduct of PERs with applications for their respective sectors.
