Country Report Bermuda 4th Quarter

The governing centre-right One Bermuda Alliance (OBA), led by the premier, Michael Dunkley, holds a slim legislative majority. Risks to the legislative agenda and political stability are low.

Efficiency measures and cuts in the public-sector wage bill will curb spending growth in 2015-16. Policy will focus on privatisation and incentives for investment. However, some pushback from trade unions is likely.

Higher debt-service costs will weigh on the public finances in 2015-16. The sovereign's debt rating will come under renewed pressure unless deficit-reduction measures reverse recent fiscal deterioration.
