HONOURABLE Rick Hou says the country’s immediate challenge that needs fixing as soon as a new Government comes into place is its cash flow problems.
Hou made the statement in an exclusive interview with Island Sun yesterday when queried on what his group will be immediately focused to fixed should it come into power.
Hou is the Heritage Park Hotel group’s candidate for the Prime Minister post.
The election of the Prime Minister is set to commence tomorrow in a secret ballot.
According to Hou, the challenge the nation is facing is the bleeding of the economy and should he be elected the next Prime Minister, his Government will be immediately focused to remedy the situation and improve revenue collection.
He then added that there is a big budget deficit and that he aims to bring that down should his group come into Government.
He then sadly admitted that donor support has also been as issue as they have been left on the side by the former Minister of Finance and Treasury.
Hou then added that he will make sure donor support remains fluid and donors are never sidelined.
“The Government’s budget is as good as nothing and what the next Government wants is nothing but to stabilize Government finances and cash flow,” Hou said.
