Public Hearings 11 to 15 October – 2022 National Budget Consultations: Committees Series 37/2021

Public Hearings Monday 11th to Friday 15th October, Public Consultations on 2022 National Budget

The Portfolio Committee on Budget and Finance and the Expanded Committee on Sustainable Development Goals [SDGs] will, on behalf of Parliament, be conducting joint public hearings from tomorrow Monday 11th October to Friday 15th October to consult members of the public ­– including organisations and individuals – to learn what the people of Zimbabwe want and expect to be contained in the National Budget for the 2022 financial year. These public hearings will be held to comply with the constitutional responsibility placed on Parliament to involve the public in all it does, particularly when it comes to the formulation of the National Budget.

The members of the Parliamentary committees concerned will split into four teams. They will hold both virtual hearings on radio and conduct physical public meetings countrywide.
