Social partner Senators question Government priorities

Posted: Thursday, March 28, 2019. 2:31 pm CST.

Aaron Humes: The Senators representing the non-governmental organizations and trade unions and civil society made their contributions to the debate on the General Revenue and Appropriation Bill.

Osmany Salas focused on how closely the Budget hews to the established government strategies and policies, particularly Horizon 2020 and the Growth and Sustainable Development Strategy.

He called for more balance regarding the three pillars of the economy – agriculture, manufacturing and services – and particularly warned about tourism becoming too much of a crutch for the nation to lean on.

Likewise Senator Elena Smith focused on the gaps in social investment, especially her area of expertise, education.

But she also noted that there are priorities being ignored, such as the health of women not being screened for cancer and implementing laws against cyberbullying which has exploded into the public domain. 

 The debate continues into this evening.
