2016 Federal Budget Executive Summary

Global economic growth slowed in 2015 to its weakest pace since the 2008-09 recession, led by slower growth in the emerging economies such as China and commodity-producing countries. The 2016 Budget projects a fiscal 2017 deficit of $29.4 billion, which is a result of the ongoing weakness in the global economy, increases in the Liberal Government’s spending commitments and lower than projected tax revenues.
