In keeping with a long standing tradition the Bermuda Chamber of Commerce, in association with sponsors PwC Bermuda, will host its Annual Budget Breakfast on Monday February 22nd at the Hamilton Princess.

In making the announcement, Chamber Executive Director Kendaree Burgess noted; “We are delighted to confirm that Minister of Finance, Everard T. [Bob] Richards has agreed to address the membership at our Annual Budget Breakfast, to be held the Monday morning immediately following the Friday, February 19th Budget Statement. The event will follow the same panel format as previous years and will be moderated by PwC Bermuda leader, Arthur Wightman.”

Ms. Burgess went on to explain further, “The Moderator will introduce our panelists and each one will have ten minutes to provide the audience with their analysis of the numbers. Our guests will be invited to submit questions in advance and on the morning of the breakfast, and it is expected that the Moderator will then lead a very lively question and answer session.”

Mr Wightman commented, “PwC is very pleased to be sponsoring the Chamber’s Budget Breakfast once again this year. A larger than usual turnout is anticipated for the annual event as the business community looks forward to hearing more from the Minister on his Budget Statement.

    I hope someone ask the Finance Minister how is it possible that any Ministry can spend $1 million dollars on any project without there being a budget in place. This flies in the face of common sense and the Finance Minister is ultimately responsible for the country’s finances!
