Engagement Notes: Medium-Term Budget Policy Committee (MTBPC) commences
Today, we kicked off the first of the Medium-Term Budget Policy Committee (MTBPC) engagements, attended by Premier Alan Winde, Minister of Finance and Economic Opportunities, David Maynier, and Minister of Local Government, Environmental Affairs and Planning, Anton Bredell together with representatives from the Western Cape Government Departments.
Hosted by Provincial Treasury, the primary aim of the MTBPC engagements will be to identify the budget policy priorities of the Western Cape Government for the 2020 Medium-Term Expenditure Framework (MTEF) and to inform the Medium-Term Budget Policy Statements (MTBPS), the 2019 – 2024 Provincial Strategic Plan, and ultimately, the delivery and accountability system that will drive what this government will be delivering within the current fiscal context.
In total there will be five MTBPC engagements, held today and on the 7 October, under the following themes:
- Economy and Jobs
- Empowering People
- Good Governance, Innovation, Resilience and Culture
