NATIONAL SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT PLAN 2030
Written by BETTYANN LAZARUS on August 16, 2017
One of the weaknesses of Grenada as a State is the absence of a comprehensive long term Strategic Development Plan. This reality has affected and continues to affect in an adverse manner, Government’s ability to deliver sustained macro-economic management.
Genesis of Plan 2030
The Committee of Social Partners, recognizing the void as described above, proposed to the present Government, the idea of elaborating a National Development Plan to cover the next fifteen (15) years of nation building efforts. The Government accepted and endorsed the proposal as put forward.
The present Government’s intention to facilitate the process was signaled in the Throne Speech of 2015 and also the Budget Statement for the Fiscal Year 2015.
On Wednesday 27th May 2015, the National Plan 2030 was launched. The National Steering Committee and the Technical Working Group charged with the elaboration of the Plan, were presented to the Nation by the Prime Minister.
A fulltime Secretariat has been established to give administrative and other support to both the Steering Committee and the Technical Working Group. The Secretariat is located in the GCNA Building, Kirani James Boulevard, St. George’s. Tel: 435-0244, Cellular: 420-2605; Email: email@example.com.
