Delivered against a backdrop of a once in a century pandemic that has thrust the global economy into the most significant economic downturn since the Great Depression, this Budget sets the nation on course for economic recovery and will be critical to creating the consumer and business confidence required to stimulate growth and redirect the nation back to economic prosperity.
