He expressed optimism that fiscal policies and legislation implemented by the executive and the legislative arms of government would soon bring normalcy to the economy.

Also on our priority list in 2021 is the amendment to the 1999 Constitution, which is the ‘grundnorm’ of our being together as a nation, the process, which started in 2020, requires extensive consultations and the buy in of everybody.” The Senate President said.
