The process produced 27 sub-committee reports and the final product: the Vision 2020 National Strategic Plan. Vision 2020 was built upon five development pil- lars which were distilled from the overall vision. These development pillars were: Developing Innovative People; Nurturing a Caring Society; Enabling Competitive Business; Investing in Sound Infrastructure and the Environment; and Promoting Effective Government. On the basis of the National Strategic Plan, a Vision 2020 Oper- ational Plan for the medium-term (2007‒2010) was developed in 2006 as the implementation mechanism through which the vision could be achieved while the Vision 2020 Programme Management Office, located within the Ministry of Planning and Development, was tasked with overseeing implementation. It should also be noted that within the five development pillars, 22 National Goals were identified alongside 125 Strategic Objectives. As Trinidad and Tobago moves towards achiev- ing the new, national strategic plan, Vision 2030, it is important to understand the country’s past development efforts under the umbrella of Vision 2020. Key questions must be answered such as what were the successes and failures of Vision 2020 and more essentially, what were the les- sons learnt that as a nation we can build upon in accomplishing Vision 2030. During 2006 to May 2010, the period under review, 85 of the 125 objectives of Vision 2020 were either ongoing or achieved as shown in Table AII.1. It must be noted that a considerable amount of activities were ongoing at the end of the review period, in comparison to those achieved, since many required a longer imple- mentation timeframe. In addition, the data in Table 1, below, shows that a higher percentage of objectives were accomplishments under the development pillars of Nurturing a Caring Soci- ety and Enabling Competitive Business. How- ever, in spite of the high percentage of activities already underway, in 2010, priorities and strat- egies were shifted due to a change in political administration. A full Review Report of the Vision 2020, is available on the Ministry of Planning and Development’s website. It highlights a review of the planning process as well as the implemen- tation progress by development pillars, taking into consideration the goals, objectives, key proj- ects/programmes as well as policies and legis- lation.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
