Finance Minister Bill English will present the National-led Government's fifth Budget on May 16.

"It will continue to implement the Government's programme to deliver a more competitive and faster-growing economy, more jobs and a return to fiscal surplus," he said.

"The global economic environment remains uncertain and this makes it even more important to maintain clear and credible fiscal settings.''

English said the Government is getting its own finances in order and addressing the country's '' significant economic challenges, including a sustained rebalancing towards the internationally competitive sectors of the economy.''
