National Infrastructure Policy Considerations

By Phinias Tafa

Since I started writing for this column, I have discovered how people are desperate to have public infrastructure sorted. I have received a lot of applause. I have also received a lot of criticism especially when I suggested that the country should introduce an infrastructure tax.

The major issue was that we are already overburdened with taxes. My suggestion was that this will be done without increasing the tax level but restructuring the current tax structure.

One reader asked me about the country's policy on integrated public infrastructure.
